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.

A real slice of Australian history, with buildings, media presentations, gift shop & artefacts. Our guide "Dashy" was clearly very proud of his involvement with the Woolscour, and rightly so, what a beautiful restoration and tour. Blackall you have done a wonderful job getting this...More
