Hi, I’m Daniel Sofia, Managing Director of Sydney Gazebo & Bali Huts.

For 20 years I worked in the construction industry as a licensed carpenter, specialising in installation. But my passion for building and restoring started long before then.

I grew up watching my grandfather handcraft furniture from timber. He was a self-taught carpenter and joiner and I was always fascinated to see what he would create. That is where my passion for developing quality handcrafted structures stemmed.

After many years of working for others, I discovered there was something lacking and I needed a new challenge.

I started Sydney Gazebo & Bali Huts not just because I needed to take on a new challenge but because I felt the market deserved better quality products, improved customer service and better standards for the installation process.

As owners of the business, we also work in the business

That is how we keep the culture of our business healthy. So if I’m not in the office talking to customers, you will find me on site and on the tools or in our manufacturing department reviewing and improving our processes and systems.

We continually evaluate what we do and how we do it to make sure our business runs efficiently and to ensure quality is always maintained.

Meet our talented team

Some people come to work every day, do their job and go home. Not the team at Sydney Gazebo & Bali Huts. We are passionate about what we do and the products that we build. Meet some of the people behind the tools:

Daniel Sofia


Daniel’s more than 20 years’ experience in carpentry and building shows in the quality of work he produces. He is always striving to achieve the results his customers expect and deserve, and won’t leave a project until the customer is totally satisfied. Daniel knows how to get the best out of your yard space.



After discovering that being cooped up in an office all day wasn’t for him, Dan was ready for a career change and he set out to complete his Certificate 3 in Carpentry and Construction. Dan enjoys nothing more than bringing a project to life from start to completion, and he receives great satisfaction from seeing how happy our customers are at the end.


The apprentice

Brendan is a real go getter with a positive ‘have a go’ attitude. He is also a quick learner and has a real passion for timber and working on the tools – most likely inspired by his grandpa who he calls a role model.

Our culture and service isn’t about selling Gazebos or Bali huts. It’s about you!

The Sydney Gazebo & Bali Huts guarantee

Most companies focus exclusively on the cost of their product so they drop their prices in order to achieve a sale and when they do, the quality and their service drops too.

Price is important to us as well – but not at the expense of our customers. We choose to remain 100% Australian made and built because we believe in maintaining the highest Australian standards. And we believe in installing our products ourselves rather than using external contractors because quality control and customer satisfaction is of the greatest importance. That’s the Sydney Gazebo & Bali Huts difference.
