Next sale

Our April sale has been postponed.

In light of Australian Federal Government advice and the NSW Government’s announcement that NSW will proceed to a more comprehensive shutdown of non-essential services, we have decided, for the health and well-being of our clients and staff, to postpone the April sale.

We intend to conduct the sale using an online platform on 18 May.

We will continue to monitor Federal and State Government advice and act accordingly.
We are very grateful for the ongoing support of our clients.
