Read about our history and what we're doing to preserve it for the future
With the land secured and a management committee formed, we bagan to receive items of history, both donated and on loan.
This included historic buildings, old machinery and a plethora of local historic artefacts.
The complex has grown to now encompass more than 20 buildings over several hectares with over 3,500 items in the collection.
As well as preserving history, there are now dedicated community groups that call the complex home, and a team of volunteers that maintain and curate displays.
The Museum now hosts open days throughout the year which both engage the community and attract tourists.
We proudly serve the Western District as a place of heritage, celebrating all things pastoral and industrial inventiveness as both a nostalgic and a learning experience.
Our group is staffed by an enthusiastic team of dedicated volunteers. Apart from funds generated from our own activities, we are also grateful for the generosity of donors and benefactors who assist with funding our operational expenditure, as well as supporting our acquisitions and expansion plans.
