Gunnedah Rural Museum

Gunnedah Rural Museum is renowned as one of Australia’s largest collections of vintage agricultural machinery and items from past rural lifestyles. The museum offers visitors a unique insight into Australia’s rich agricultural history with a range of vintage materials on display, including tractors, stationary engines, workshop manuals, and agricultural machinery.

The museum’s annual OPEN DAY is always held on the fourth Sunday in March. Visitors can see operating steam engines, vintage tractor pulls, whip-cracking demonstrations, face painting for the children, a variety of working motors and pumps, and all other displays in our museum. Entry is by gold coin donation.

Our very own MEN’S SHED meets every Wednesday at 9.30 am for morning tea and a yarn.
