Loved the horse.

Interesting rebirth of old railway building. I particularly loved the horse and his harness and the drawers and cupboards of interest in the first room.

This is a small but interesting museum that appears to be run on voluntary basis so entry is by donation . Well worth a look around to gather some of the towns heritage.

This place certainly lives up to it's reputation. Backing on to the golf course with great views across the fairways only enhances the relaxing time you have. Everything is just perfect, particularly if you have an extended stay. I just wish my stay was longer. You won't be disappointed.

The coin donation as with other volunteer maintained places is well worth seeing. Drift back in time as you learn about the Cootamundra area. The indigenous girls school period, qand so many other elements of the area is very well covered,
