Decided to look in while in the district. Amazed to see the restoration that has been going on to restore this piece of the Australian wool industry. Engineers of the day certainly had a good grasp of design and operation. Certainly would not be able...More

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.
