Over the past 157 years the Cally has become a local landmark, and the hotel’s owners have a great attachment to the hotel and strongly believe in keeping things local.

Today, three new pendant lights from Inkster were delivered and will soon be installed in the establishment’s front entrance.

Hugh Altschwager, who founded Inkster in 2013, was recently awarded first prize in the 3D category for his composite limestone vase, "Beaker Boy”, in the Southern Ocean Art Prize (SOAP). 

Hugh donated his prize winnings of $2000 back to the SOAP committee, in an extreme act of generosity, and places a strong emphasis on locally sourced, natural and unprocessed materials. 

A great deal of refurbishments have taken place over the past year at the Cally, which include sanding of the stairway, re-carpeting and freshly painted rooms.

The lights that will sit in the Cally’s entrance are hand turned SA limestone shades and are made in Melbourne with locally sourced materials.
