Stone's Throw is a coffee-come-gift store situated in the small farming town of Walgett, located in the heart of rural NSW. 700km north-west of Sydney, 700km south-west of Brisbane, and officially located within Outback NSW. I came to town in early 2014 and opened Stone's Throw in the middle of a drought that was 18months in and still going 6 years later! Despite this, the resilient community of Walgett welcomed me with open arms and never looked back. It is a truly unique and special community to have joined, and I thank each and everyone of our customers for supporting me over the last six years.
My mission is to be able to continually give back to the community of Walgett by providing a high level of service and range of products that often cannot be found in smaller remote towns, and to do so in a vibrant and engaging space.
This website was closed down in winter of 2019 due to a lack of interest and resources dedicated to the online side of the business. When Grace Brennan opened the country's eyes to supporting small bush-based businesses in October of the same year with the #buyfromthebush initiative, I re-booted the online side of Stone's Throw and since then we have had a steadily growing engagement to our social media and online platform.
We try to keep our loyal online customers informed via our instagram handle @stonesthrowwalgett.
The voice behind Stone's Throw is that of my lovely team of staff who are forever upending their lives to make the wheels turn inside the store! They are mums, university students, daughters, girlfriends and wives of local farmers and professionals, and every one of them is the reason my customers keep coming back!
Thank you for supporting Stone's Throw!
