The Village Players are based at Clontarf Cottage, a fully restored, heritage listed landmark in Sydney, Australia. Since its renovation it has become the hub for artists in the Balmain/Glebe area. The space is constantly booked for plays, events, guided walks, exhibitions, and discussions. Being central to the city of Sydney but in a quiet location near the harbor, Balmain is a highly sought after area to live in Sydney.

Well known personalities and celebrities are among the tenants living on the shore line. Balmain's main street is crowded with trendy bars and restaurants. Clontarf Cottage continues to play a vital role in Balmain's culture and adds significantly to the artistic lifestyle of this busy suburb.
