We have a dedicated crew maintaining the Steam Boiler in the Sawmill.  Every Friday morning, they light up the boiler so guests can see the sawmill running on steam only.

Check the Facebook page for any Friday outages, or you can call the Museum on 54837691 just to make sure you don’t miss it on the Friday you wish to attend.

SAWMILL NOW RUNNING ON A FRIDAY MORNING

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.

The Woodworks Museum and Interpretive Centre will foster a new appreciation for this truly sustainable industry and the role that it plays in sustaining our community, their employment, tourism and our environment.
