Museum upgrade to boost domestic tourismThe new and improved Wheatlands Agricultural Machinery Museum, housing the largest collection of historical machinery in Australia, was officially opened today by Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Victoria Danielle Green.

 

The upgrade will ensure the ongoing viability of the museum, which plays an important role in the region’s tourism industry.

 

“Since 1963, the Wheatlands Agricultural Machinery Museum has been collecting historical pieces – from old tractors, hay bailers, tractors, to engines – the Museum has something for every farming and historical enthusiast,” Green said.

 

The upgraded museum will see thousands of people flock to Warracknabeal for a piece of agricultural history. The opening also coincided with the annual Easter Vintage Machinery Rally, now in its 50th year, attracting visitors from all over the region.

 

The upgrade includes a redeveloped main entrance area, so visitors now have a modern, functional introduction to Australia’s premier Agricultural Machinery Museum. The new, larger foyer incorporates a meeting room, archive area, office, kitchen, two accessible toilets, a large display area and a windlock entry with double sliding doors.
