Ever wonder what it’s like to be a pioneer or a stockman, looking after the livestock in remote Australia? Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage Centre proudly displays objects and images from the bygone days, honoring the greatest and bravest explorers and Aborigines from the outback. Navigate through the galleries to understand why the founder and a former stockman himself, Hugh Sawrey, wanted to create a tribute to the unsung heroes and pioneering spirit. Admire the building from outside, and its stunning design from timber, stone and corrugated iron, reminiscent of the outback. Walk next door to visit a sandstone cottage complete with hand-edged timber, which is now an information center and a library.

  • My wife and I visited this display about a month ago and were very excited to see such an extensive display of our aussie past and history. Would love to see it again one day.
  • Was ok very dimly lit lots of very interesting info ...so much reading .the film was interesting but there is so much about our pioneers at very town i think i have see and heard similar several times . The tourist park in Barcaldine had a speaker in at damper time and we enjoyed hearing him and his yarns.
  • We enjoyed this. The building itself is magnificent. The museum had LOTS to raed and listen too.
  • Got there late and spent almost the whole time in the aboriginal section. Thoughtful and informative. Got lost in time listening to the stories.
  • Very extensive and a variaty of displays pertaining to out back life from the ealy days to more recent times.
