Didgeridoo Road Trip

The Spirit Gallery team has just returned from our biggest didgeridoo road trip ever. Visiting the countries top craftsmen and bringing you the best Eucalyptus termite hollowed music quality didgeridoos on the planet!


Our journey began with a visit to South East Queensland where we sourced over 80 new Iron Bark didgeridoos for the gallery. Out of a collection of approximately 200 we gathered the best and the brightest for our store, including some painted Ironbarks from local Aboriginal artists Leony Roser and Lionel Phillips



Next stop was a highway meet up where we picked up over 30 beautifully painted didgeridoos from Nathan Falke


We then ventured to the Northern River Region of NSW where we spent some time with Tristan Omeara. Finding Tristan’s well hidden workshop is always a challenge as street signs disappear and one must navigate with hand written instructions and if you get lost forget about using the mobile phone as reception is almost non-existent. We finally arrived at Tristan’s picking the cream of what he had including our favourite a long perfect tapered 195cm bell trim C keyed didgeridoo. We also picked up some more affordable epoxy re-works from Tristan. Once again hand picked by the Spirit Gallery team to bring you the best quality.



Next stop was a visit to Kristian Benton near Coffs Harbour where Kristian had a dozen high end instruments waiting for us. Was a great pleasure to catch up with Kristian and share a few beers and talk all things didgeridoo



On our final leg we stopped to visit Tynon from Heartland Didgeridoos picking up our long awaited shipment of quality Heartland didgeridoos. Spirit Gallery is blessed to be the exclusive Australian retail outlet for Heartland Didgeridoos with some of the rarest and most unique Eucalyptus didgeridoos on the planet with Tynon’s best work always coming our way. Over 25 new Heartland Didgeridoos are now online



So what does that mean for our loyal customers. Australia’s best didges from our best makers, all hand picked, only at Spirit Gallery. The only didge store that goes that extra mile !! We don’t muck around with 95cm squeaky high G’s and pretend they are quality instruments or perfect beginners didgeridoos- we will leave that for the souvenir stores.


We genuinely source the countries top instruments, whether it be from our best makers or from the more affordable range. We also don’t “hide” our makers and love to share their stories, photos, videos and didgeridoo journey with our customers. Our makers are not just our business partners but our close friends.  This is what sets us apart from other stores and why we have developed such a following among didgeridoo players and why Australia’s top makers have chosen Spirit Gallery to showcase their didgeridoos.


We have already uploaded about half of these new didgeridoos with another 40-50 to be uploaded in the next couple of weeks.


So, come and visit Australia’s largest and finest collection of didgeridoos and purchase your authentic eucalyptus termite hollowed didgeridoo either online or in store today!


As always, any questions, queries, feedback, requests feel free to drop us an e-mail at info@spiritgallery.com.au or call us on 61 (2) 92475961 and we will do our best to help you.


Many thanks

Jesse Lethbridge Didgeridoos Now Available at Spirit Gallery

The wait is over! Introducing our newest didgeridoo range – Jesse Lethbridge Didgeridoos.


Most didgeridoo enthusiasts would already know Jesse for the high quality perfectly crafted instruments he has been producing for almost 15 years. Jesse has also produced several albums, both didgeridoo and multi-instrumental, and often tours around Australia.


Jesse started playing didgeridoo in 1998. In 2000 he traveled throughout Australia to deepen his connection with the didgeridoo, culminating in a visit to Arnhem Land where he spent time with internationally renowned didgeridoo maker, player and spiritual custodian of the didgeridoo, Djalu Gurruwiwi.


By 2004 he had devoted his days to crafting these incredible instruments. As Jesse explains-


My workshop is in the pristine Bellingen shire in New South Wales, Australia. where its mostly balmy enough to work outside. I live and work on an acreage with my beautiful partner and two children. I am following my bliss; playing music, making instruments, singing, exploring the world, basking in nature and family life.


 Alongside my love to play the didgeridoo, I play 6 and 12 string guitar, mandolin, percussion, native American flute, first generation hang and recently began journeying with the gubal. Enjoy checking out my creations!


We are delighted to be able to showcase these wonderfully crafted instruments to the world. Buy your Jesse Lethbridge Didgeridoo Today!


Wix Stix Didgeridoos Now Available At Spirit Gallery

wix stix didgeridoosIntroducing our newest didgeridoo crafter Bruce Wix of Wix Stix Didgeridoos and what a find it has turned out to be!! High quality perfectly crafted instruments that have impressed even the fussiest of didgeridoo connoisseurs.



About Wix Stix Didgeridoos  


Bruce Wix started making didgeridoos in the mid 1990’s, which quickly became  a passion which he is still pursuing 20 years later. Bruce began playing didgeridoo while travelling up and down the east coast of Cape York on a line fishing boat. Curiosity about the didge and its different qualities got him wanting to explore the intricacies of such an earthy sounding instrument. As a joiner and stair builder Bruce already had extensive timber knowledge and this was an asset in designing and crafting his own unique style of didgeridoos.

Bruce’s didgeridoos are all individually hand carved from Australian eucalyptus timbers, Poplar Box, Silver leaf Iron bark, Black Woolly Butt and Bloodwoods. These timbers are naturally termite hollowed and sourced from indigenous didgeridoo cutter Peter Santo in Queensland, Australia.


Bruce seasons his logs by removing the bark and sap wood and letting them dry for 6-12 months, he then shapes the logs and lets them sit for a further period before the final finishing and coating. Bruce prefers a timber mouth piece, so he sleeves most of his didgeridoos. This process allows for a standard size mouth piece and eliminates the need for wax. For this process he uses camphor laurel timber which also has anti-bacterial qualities.   


It has taken some time and convincing but Bruce is now ready to showcase Wix Stix to the world and lucky for us he has chosen Spirit Gallery to be his sole Australian retail outlet. It is an absolute honour to have a maker of Bruce’s quality on board and his didgeridoos are already turning heads in the gallery for their immaculate finish, workmanship, attention to detail and playability.


Bruce hopes you will enjoy and appreciate this finely crafted instrument as much as he has enjoyed creating it.

Heartland Didgeridoos Have Arrived

Australia’s most creative didge maker, Tynon from Heartland Didgeridoos, came for a visit a couple of weeks ago and with him brought down what is probably the best collection of Heartland didgeridoos we have ever seen.


Over 30 immaculately crafted didgeridoos of the highest standard.


Check out Tynon with the 2.25metre 30-40cm bell monster didge below.


New Bruce Rogers & Carved Kristian Benton Didgeridoos

It has been a long wait but we have finally received some carved didgeridoos from Kristian Benton and some amazingly high quality didgeridoos from master craftsmen Bruce Rogers.


There are very few didgeridoo makers who also happen to be great artists and even rarer, great players. This is why Kristian is by far Australia’s most talented crafter/player/artist combo. Kristian has carved some beautiful new didgeridoos for us. Carving has become such a rare art form especially on quality sounding didgeridoos. Kristian truly is an amazing, rare and unique talent.


The wait is also over for some new Bruce Roger’s didgeridoos. Bruce takes his time and does not produce a high volume of instruments but when he makes a didge they are a pure work of genius. This bunch of didges are some of the most user friendly sweet sounding balanced didgeridoos we have seen from Bruce in a long time.


We visited Bruce during last year’s Melbourne Didgeridoo and Cultural Festival and he was kind enough to invite us to his home/workshop where we couldn’t resist but record a quick didge solo. Enjoy!




New Heartland Didgeridoos Now Available

Tynon Bradford of Heartland Didgeridoos made the long trip down to Sydney from Bellingen and with him came approximately 25 of the nicest Heartland didgeridoos we think we have ever seen.


A master craftsmen with the utmost attention to detail, we are proud Tynon has chosen Spirit Gallery to be his primary retail outlet. Tynon keeps his finest work for Spirit Gallery including this crazy 3 metre didge pictured above.


Check out the new range of Heartland Didgeridoos!

Spirit Gallery Didgeridoos & William Barton at the Sydney Opera House

Our good friend William Barton will be performing at the Sydney Opera House on Saturday 3rd August with the Australian Youth Orchestra. William came in earlier in the week before rehearsals to pick out the didgeridoos he will be using.


William knows a good didge when he sees one and these three beauties caught his attention- a CrookedStixz Didgeridoo (left) Tristan O’meara Didgeridoo (middle) and Bruce Rogers (right). Three of the countries top instrument makers all on stage at the Opera House- awesome!!
