About UKI


 

Uki - "Putting the Unity into Community".

Uki is a little village nestled at the base of Wollumbin (Mt Warning). Uki is populated with unique and creative individuals who make it unlike any other little town you will come across. Although it is small, we are lucky enough to have a collection of small businesses including a fantastic second hand bookstore, a vintage and antique store and a silver smith and that’s just a few.

Uki is lucky enough to be 15 minutes away from the regional art gallery, which showcases some of our best domestic and international artists. We are also lucky enough to be surrounded by some of the world’s best watering holes and beaches.

Uki is a colorful place even during the day when we are at work and the kids are at school you can often find someone playing a guitar or picnicking in the local park. Glow dance is a regular event which is well known for bringing the towns people together in a celebration of dance and good music.

The Buttery

The regions abundant rainfall meant dairy farming was a major industry in the past and Norco (Northern Rivers Co Operative) built and operated a buttery.  The buttery was decommissioned in 1947 and after changing hands several times the Uki residents association had the for sight to purchase the building in 1991.

Tweed Regional Gallery and Margret Olley Centre

We can almost guarantee you have not seen a gallery in a more beautiful location, surrounded by stunning gardens and green grass and cows grazing. Although the gallery has exhibitions from big international and domestic artists they also host many local competitions such as the olive cotton photography award which offers $20,000 as a prize.

Margret Olley centre was opened in march and has created a lot of buzz and excitement, you can roam around the perfectly re constructed house which took years to plan and curate, everything is placed as the famous Australian artist left it in her Sydney home. Our regional tweed art gallery is not one to be missed.
