A little bit of yesteryear ...

Quoted from their website The Dubbo Regional Museum Collection was established in 1954 by Andy Graham, who began collecting objects in his backyard shed in Wingewarra Street. The collection has developed to reflect the many different roles that Dubbo has played over its almost 170 year history.

The cultural centre houses both a museum and art collection; we lunched in the restaurant there also for my friend's birthday too.  Because of a change of hangings in the making for the art section, it was closed on the day ... come back soon!


 I'll just stand here so you can see how big the wheels are; I'm not sure how I'd climb up onto that cart!


this was more my size


it' a wool-press

Great treasures there. That is one huge wagon. I love the yellow one with the orange wheels.
