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 rip-roaring drought that was 2 years in, with 2 years to go. 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 four 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 hopefully becomes a lovely extension of what we have and create in store. If there is ever anything more you want to see on the website, I will be more than willing to try and find it for you.
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!
I hope that this website helps you find that gift for someone special, allows you to spoil yourself with that item you have had your eye on for a while, and to shop in peace without worrying about your kids playing "chicken" with the cars out the front. All feedback is welcome and encouraged!
Thank you for supporting Stone's Throw!
