Stawell has been home to Krause Bricks, which continues to be a family owned and run business, since 1945. Many prominent buildings and landmarks around Stawell proudly showcase Krause Bricks. The traditional craftsmanship and methods of brickmaking have been passed down through three generations, with each one adding their own innovations and modernizations. The distinctive quality of Krause Bricks has been recognized by many of Australia’s most prestigious industry awards. Most recently, Krause Bricks achieved the Horbury Hunt Award for its contribution to the John Wardle Monash University project.
This project was made possible thanks to support from the Victorian State Government.
