General

The heritage listed ‘Mt Dutton Bay Woolshed’ is a ‘working’ Museum consisting of hundreds of local items depicting the history of the Shearing, farming and fishing era. These items adorn the restored stone walls of this Heritage listed woolshed.

Some items were found under debris of the Woolshed at the time of restoration (mid 1992). A popular item of interest is the fully restored ‘Robinson double-box Wool press’ which is in excellent working order. This Wool press was made in England in the early 1800’s and was brought to Australia in the 1850’s where an Australian inventor modified this press slightly, to then be sent to the Mt Dutton Bay Woolshed in 1875. The ‘Robinson double-box Wool press’ is the only known ‘double-dumping’ wool press with this design, in working order, in Australia! Over 60,000 bales of wool were pressed by this Robinson double-box press from 1875 – 1920.

‘Heritage Tours’ of the Woolshed Museum are available for large or small groups, coach tours and school groups. Our famous ‘Duttonshire Teas’ is also available for groups, which consists of ‘homemade scones’, local quandong jam and whipped cream’ with brewed coffee or tea…. and true Australian hospitality!
