What we're about

Gold Coast Techspace is physical place where people can go a hack around with technology and unleashing your inner maker. Whether it be Software, Hardware, Robotics, 3D Printing, Green Technology or anything else that takes your fancy - this is the place where you we can come together, make friends, get projects off the ground and learn from each other in a collaborative, non-exclusive environment.

The space is located on the sunny Gold Coast, Australia - in Mudgeeraba.

Gold Coast Techspace is a community-based workshop where people of all ages and experience can come together to access tools, equipment and knowledge they may not be able to access anywhere else. We exist to promote craftiness and creativity on the Gold Coast using modern technology such as 3D printers, Arduino boards, and computer-controlled laser cutters; and that's just what we have for now!

If you want to design, build, create or try new ideas in an inclusive environment then this is the place for you.

Please visit https://gctechspace.org for more details.

This tour starts at 7:30pm, please arrive at least 5 mins early to meet the member conducting the tour.

There is loads of parking behind the building, just walk up the ramp you drove past to get in.
