“A trip down Memory Lane”

Step back into 1884 by visiting the Woodsdale Museum in the heart of the midlands farming district. This group of very talented and energetic volunteers have transformed an old school residence into a museum and an active school room for visiting school groups. From time to time the school has changing exhibitions from photographs to unusual objects.

The group presently are busy planning for their Annual Fair and Picnic Day which is run each year with live shearing, wood chopping, damper making, music, fashion shows and lots more. Any inquiries about the fair day ring Yvonne Crawford on 03 62 546 171 or after hours 03 62 546 165.

The museum is run by volunteers in the area and events held at the museum are lunches, morning teas, school groups, festival days and meetings.

The museum consists of a school house set up in the period of the late 1800s, school room with changing displays every 3 months, sheep shearing interpretation shed from the 1860s to the present day and a Men’s/farming shed with drays, Douglas 1924 motor bike to a Thylacine trap.
