Did the self guided tour. Good in theory but is outdated (a lot the exhibitions are still from 2000). Not all items work in the tour which is disappointing. Beautiful venue and the wine bar down stairs is fantastic (if a little $$$)

This is an architecturally interesting building in a pleasant setting conveniently reached from the eastern city limit on foot. There is an informative exhibition on the history of wine-making in Australia, the varieties of grape, aromas, bottling and other aspects of wine production. A central...More

Nice building and museum - of course it focusses on Oz wines and local wine history, but the various grape varietals depicted (incl pip and grape shapes) are also interesting. On the ground floor there are climate controlled tasting dispensers: for about AU$ 3 to...More
