Brimbank Repair Cafe


The Sunshine Repair Café is one of a thousand+ repair cafes around the world. At the Repair Café, volunteer fixers and menders offer their time and skills to make repairs free of charge.


People visiting the Repair Café bring broken or damaged items from home – toasters, lamps, hair dryers, clothes, bikes, toys, crockery... anything that is broken is welcome. This helps reduce waste, save money and resources, and can help reduce CO2 emissions.

It’s also an excellent educational opportunity to watch and learn as items are repaired.

Above all, the Repair Café shows how much fun repairing things can be and how easy it often is. By sharing skills and know-how, we help build community as well.

Sunshine Repair Cafe is held on the 4th Sunday of the month between 12pm and 3pm.

Need Something Repaired?

Repairs are FREE! Send us an email to make a time to bring your item in by emailing us at You are welcome to come along without an appointment, but we cannot guarantee a repairer will be available.
