Blackall Woolscour – Australia’s Heritage at its best
Blackall has the only fully intact steam-powered wool washing plant left in Australia. The historic Blackall Woolscour is a living museum and a direct physical link to Australia’s pioneering era. It is totally authentic, unique, full of history and has great educational and social values. The Woolscour operated commercially under steam power from 1908 until 1978, and though it is now a tourist attraction, the machinery is as functional now as it was then.
Tour guides are on site every day, all year (except Christmas Day) from 9 am to 5 pm and tours operate on the hour with the last tour leaving at 4 pm. The engine only operates on steam from May to August each year.
