  • Nice museum, lots of artefacts and video, and a great shearing display!
  • Amazing range of products in the shop, Kathy is amazing at stocking great quality and priced goods
  • A lot of information on sharing. Sharing demonstration included if you are at the right times.
  • A great local history museum. Well worth the visit. Has a local cafe and good souvenir shop. The shearing shed is amazing and the maze is quite fun. The property that it is on is brilliant.
  • Great facility but a bit pricey for entry.
