Sensational tour of the Blackall Wool Scour. Shows you the history of wool production in Australia and shows a steam driven wool scourer, in pristine condition which has been restored by locals over many years. Go and see it and support an Australian community!!!

The volunteers who have dedicated their lives to the restoration of this piece of Australian history are to be applauded. Fascinating insight to a city slicker on our rural past.

Excellent guided tour. Could almost see and smell as it was in its Hay Day. Will restored machinery working well just waiting for men to get steam ticket so it can run on Steam rather than electric motors. Well worth the visit.
