Visit Central Coast Commons

Our local providore and soap workshop is located at 33 Mann St, Gosford, NSW, Australia. It is there that we make our soaps, run soap making workshops and sell locally made products from more than a dozen local businesses.

How to find us

You will find our opening hours and a map at the bottom of this page.

We are located on Mann St about 100m up the road from Gosford Police Station and 650m south of Gosford railway station. If you are driving, we are located about 250m off the Central Coast Highway just as you are passing by the Gosford waterfront (turn off at Vaughan Ave).


Like any store, we welcome you to come it at any time and have a browse. Our soap making area is located at the back of the store and  is set up to allow easy viewing of our soap making operations (free to watch of course). We tend to make soap at least a few times per day, though not to a specific schedule. If we are not making soap then speak to our staff - they may be able to make a batch just for you you to watch or at the very least can walk you through the process. If you are in a large group then you can also let us know that you are coming and we can time our soap making for when you are there.


There is plenty of free on street parking in the area as well as a number of paid parking structures within walking distance in the Gosford CBD.


If you are part of a larger group (10 or more) that intends to visit, we ask that you kindly let us know ahead of time. With notice, we can usually schedule a soap making demonstration for the time of your group visit. There is also a bus zone directly out the front of the store for easy drop-off and pick-up.
