Dirty Janes is a mixture of mostly old and some not so old items. A purely antique place it is not, but if you like to browse through old wares, some antiques and plenty of vintage items, this is for you. We enjoyed the surprises...More

Whether you want to grab a bit or have a high tea and idle the hours away looking at great antique outlets. It’s all there. So much fun. The tea room is the best. So many gorgeous lifestyle shops like Suzie Anderson Home.

We enjoyed our second visit to this Cafe. Hubby ordered pea & ham soup: very good. I enjoyed High Tea with scones, cakes etc. Scrumptious. Small Cafe, had to line up but only had to wait about 5 minutes. Well worth a visit to Bowral

Dirty Janes is well worth a visit when in the area, easily the largest in the area and separated into different types of items. Would do research before buying however, as prices are on the high side

Wow what a place, full of stuff, old, antique,retro. You could walk around all day it’s such a great atmosphere. The cafe is lovely with the best food at reasonable prices. Great place to spend a few hours.

Dirty Janes is several warehouses joined together that hold hundreds of walled semi-permanent stalls. Each stall contains jewellery, antiques, clothing or bric-a-brac. I felt like I was on a treasure hunt and found several unique pieces to purchase.... but I was also overwhelmed by the...More

We tried the scones and tea after having a great walk around the antiques in the area. Scones were great though the experience in dealing with staff was disappointing to be honest. I'll try again one day and hopefully we are met with a smile...More

Not sure about opening hours. Normally Bowral is a go to destination during school holidays and Easter/Christmas. Either way go extra early waiting times can be very long.
