Congratulations to this town for this excellent display. The windmill has played such a significant role in Australian agriculture. Well worth the stop and a slow walk around the exhibits. Free.

We didn't have time to stop when travelling east but on the way back we did and found it worth the stop. It is a really interesting collection of these iconic Australian emblems and the variety is fascinating.

This is worth a stop, which is likely due to its location! it is free of charge and quite the spectacle, with no charge to enter and have a look around there is a great swing there for kids to play on and "pump" water

Boasting the largest windmill in Australia which we were surprised to find was donated by my husband’s cousin, the outdoor museum features at least fifteen windmills of different descriptions. Penong is the township known for its windmills, so a quick visit is a must.
