JONDARYAN WOOL SHED
Jondaryan is a working woolshed, and a rural heritage museum. Outdoors, there is allsorts of machinery and different items covering rural history.
Admission includes browsing around the old buildings and collections, seeing sheep, horses, poultry and other animals, and if there at the right time, seeing old skills being used, and Machine's of yesteryear, this is from Wednesday to Sunday.
One of the demonstrations is shearing in the woolshed. Others are seeing the working horses, wagon rides, blacksmithing, and wool spinning.
My favorites are the working horses and watching the sheep dogs round up the sheep, they are so clever, and they save the Farmer a lot of work.
We had a meal of Damper and corn beef and billy tea, YUMMY! The damper is cooked in the open coals of a fire.
Tea and damper only available Wednesday - Sunday
There is accommodation if you wish to stay here, it is very reasonable.
Take the road that leads to Oakey, go past Oakey and its little further on.
