Overview

The Museum is wholly owned by its members for the benefit of the community, and to preserve the history of its people for the generations to come. We are open every day from 8.30Am to 5.00Pm except Good Friday and Christmas day. Come and have a wander and spend quality time reflecting on the past. You will probably find things with which you can identify, and remember. Just ask your children what a wringer washer is, chances are they won't know, and here's your chance to show them!

The museum itself (as opposed to the restaurant next door) is an interesting collection of old bits and pieces you would find in a variety of sheds around Australia. The kids found a few things interesting like the old telephones and computers.

Been here a couple of times now. Great location overlooking the lake with both outdoor and indoor seating. Good selection of specials that changes every week besides their regular fare - their grilled mullet coorong is very very good. Great coffee and a good selection...More
