A story about forests, people and wood.
The Australian Forestry story has deep roots in Aboriginal culture, European settlement and pioneering, industrialisation, expansion and still, today in all aspects of Australian life. Forests have always been central to Australian culture, industries and landscapes.
The Woodworks Museum and Interpretive Centre re-defines the Forestry Story through live demonstration, science-based education and state-of-the-art interpretation. You will see fascinating relics of forest history, lovingly restored and working in live demonstrations.
You will also see a broad range of interpretive displays on the region’s forest industry, from its historical roots through to modern-day machinery and forest management techniques. Gain a better understanding of the region’s unique forest ecosystems and the role they play in the landscape and the carbon cycle.
