Book a Factory Tour

Street Furniture Australia’s factory in Regents Park, Western Sydney, is both a manufacturing hub and R&D studio for our Australian-designed and made street furniture products.

We host fun and informative factory tours for customers throughout the year, to show how our products are designed, tested and built, and to share our latest products and projects.

This is a free group event catering to landscape architects, architects, and asset managers from government agencies.

Director of Tract Julie Lee said of the tour: “It was a great opportunity for our team to look behind the scenes and understand the innovation, research and climate positive outcomes Street Furniture Australia is focusing on. Thank you for having us!”

Place Design Group Associate, Liam Isaksen said: “The factory tour is a fun experience to learn about the design and manufacturing process of public furniture we use in landscape architecture design. Seeing the work behind the scenes and understanding what design is achievable was really great.”

Strathfield Council Place Designer, Ben Michel, said: “As a design professional it’s important to understand how the products we specify for use in the community are manufactured. The tour and presentations helped my work through the networking opportunities and deeper understanding of Street Furniture Australia’s products.”

The 2-hour experience includes:

  • Touring the Factory and Showroom, where you will hear about the latest products and materials.
  • Meeting our production team and seeing how products are made.
  • Seeing the R&D facilities where materials and products are developed and tested.
  • A presentation on products of interest and environmental initiatives.

Why choose the original Linea over reproductions?

Successful products are often followed by copycats. Over the past year we have become aware of an increase in reproductions of the Linea range attempting to create a similar aesthetic at a lower price. This can compromise the overall durability and environmental credentials of projects being delivered, affect ongoing maintenance requirements, and in some instances pose a risk of injury to the public. The design of Linea is deceptively simple while delivering exceptional attention to detail. Details matter not only for beauty, but also for providing durability, and safety, that will last decades. Linea strictly uses the highest quality and sustainable materials, has passed rigorous strength tests, and is designed for longevity, with easily replaceable parts. The product range is the result of hundreds of hours of research and development …

Earthy Pastels: now with UV resistance

You can now specify Street Furniture Australia’s popular Earthy Pastels colour range with the assurance of brilliant colour for years to come. That’s because the UV resistance currently applied to the Durabright Range has been added to Earthy Pastels as standard. The Earthy Pastels range was introduced in July 2022 to meet popular demand for contemporary muted hues. As Earthy Pastels were increasingly specified across a wide range of landscape design projects, it was important to ensure the full range of colours would retain their brilliance in the harsh Australian climate. The Earthy Pastels range includes eight colours inspired by the Australian landscape. Muted shades in Mustard, Dusty Pink and Pale Eucalypt green are inspired by the desert. The blue ocean and sky are represented by the hues Horizon Blue …

Their mantra is ‘ask forgiveness, not permission.’  The guerilla urbanism movement was the focus of a recent webinar hosted by the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) – ‘On the Park Bench: Guerilla Urbanism.’ Robert Steuteville from the CNU writes, “From toilet plungers for bike lanes to community gardens on vacant lots to locally sourced incremental development, citizens are finding creative ways to make urban space.” During the webinar, small developer, Jason Hyman talks about a not for profit organisation in Houston D3tM, or Do the Things That Matter, guerilla urbanism that ‘disrupts’ existing systems to create …
