Windmill
Working windmill in the grounds of the museum

In February 1992 the Historical Society received a donation of a Southern Cross windmill from the Mead family farm at Darawank. By February 1993 the windmill was installed along with a new water storage tank and began pumping out water for the lawns in the grounds of the museum. The windmill is a memorial to the hundreds of thousands of similar windmills all over Australia supplying water to the homestead and stock.
