St Kilda Repair Cafe

Repairing goods, sharing skills & knowledge, reducing landfill & household spend, while celebrating community

Become a volunteer fixer/mender  

Three Repair Cafes and counting

We started in November 2017 and in the 3 repair cafes we’ve had so far we’ve had 91 visitors and our volunteer fixers have fixed 52 items, with another 21 needing some extra parts. That’s a total of 143 kg of ‘stuff’ saved from landfill, not to mention many happy people (see the photos elsewhere on this website).

Where we are

When do our Repair Cafes happen?


Our next Repair Cafe is on

Sunday 11th March from 2-5 pm

… and after that, second Sunday of every month except January, from 2-5 pm.

(No new items for fixing accepted after 4:30pm)


Please note: Parking in the area can be challenging. Allow plenty of time, and if you have large items needing fixing, perhaps come with someone and drop them off with the items then go looking for a parking spot.
