Very interesting to watch how big logs were very quickly broken down. The manager gave a very good description and answered any questions.

There is a walking track around the river which passes right through the sawmill where you can hear them hard at work they make railway sleepers out of red gum there's piles of graded sawdust and hundreds of logs.

It's well worth a visit because they are not many of them left. It's possible to walk through the sawmill. We were there at the weekend, so it was closed.

River Red Gum Sawmill is a very interesting place to visit and established in 1889 is still a work in progress. A tour of the mill is worthwhile as is a look in the shop which has some lovely wood articles

The sawmill is 120 years young & still in work producing great wood of all sizes. Wood from here is on display as the Status carved along the area from Koondrook to Barham which are excellent.

A visit to the sawmill if you are in the area is certainly worthwhile, lots of history there as well. After you have been there, take a stroll along the river edge and see all the statues that are carved from wood - excellent.

Koondrook is right on the Murray River and this saw mill is steeped in history. The name of Alexander Arbuthnot is synonymous with the days when Paddle Steamers were more than Tourist attractions. "Sandy” started his business at Koondrook using a second hand steam engine...More
