Description

This is certainly Australia's only restored Black Wattle Bark Mill, and possibly the only one in the world! Made from a variety of objects found at the time, such as jam tins, packing cases and old bed sheets, a visit here gives a fascinating insight into the ancient art of using bark or tanning leather. The Museum depicts the early history of the oldest Rural Municipality in Australia. Individual displays depict life as it was in the early 1820's and beyond. The descendants of the original settlers have loaned many items and photographs to the exhibition. While you're here don't miss the Gift Shop which has a range of beautiful knitwear, country clothing, crafts and souvenirs or why not stop in at the Tavern and sample some of the fresh Tasmanian produce including the renowned east coast seafood.
