Things to Do

Visitor Centre And CBH Museum

Railway Tce

At the site of the original Wheatbin, the museum houses a wonderful collection of equipment which traces the history of farming and transportation from the early 1900s to the present. Much of the machinery is still in working condition as is the “Waterloo Boy” one of the first John Deere tractor models made in 1920. It is one of very few in Australia and takes pride of place in the museum.

The Visitor Centre and Library is now located at the front of the museum in 'The Bushel'.

Water Wise Garden

Corner of Railway Tce and Honour Avenue
