Had not heard of this before our outback Qld holiday. It certainly is a must see attraction. Nothing else like it in the worl, I believe. Reasonably priced. A really interesting guide shows you through the old wool scour, bringing the history to life.

Sensational tour of the Blackall Wool Scour. Shows you the history of wool production in Australia and shows a steam driven wool scourer, in pristine condition which has been restored by locals over many years. Go and see it and support an Australian community!!!
