We came for a coffee and some toast and ended up spending over an hour looking at all the amazing historical collectables on display. You could easily spend half a day here. It is a credit to the 4 generations of Wellsteads and it is...More

As a lover of heritage museums, I was disappointed to see this one that has so much history to showcase looked very neglected and dirty... $6 is very overpriced compared to others that are better presented.

Extensive, fascinating and great variety of classics, memorabilia and collectables. Some areas a bit cluttered and could use some description. Good value for money at $6. Love the heritage stone buildings. Well restored and nice to have accommodation and cafe on site. Friendly helpful staff.

We went there for a great lunch but were blown away by the fabulous museum of the local area, great cars, motorbikes, tractors and everything else needed in the farming area since it was settled.

An excellent museum, full of memorabilia and the history of settlement in this region. A treasure trove of artifacts compiled by current owner and descendant of original Wellstead Family who settled here in mid 1850s. I especially admired the beautiful stone buildings.

The Wellsteads have been there for generations and are still going, as I understand it. If you are interested in the heritage of local life, over the past 150+ years, the museum houses an impressive collection of antiquities, vehicles, carriages, tools, guns, musical instruments -...More
