In the factory

This is the place for those who love machines. Find out how wool is turned into fabric.

See, hear, smell and feel wool as it transforms from raw, greasy fleece into finished fabric.

Learn more about the scouring, combing and spinning process and try your hand at carding, weaving or machine knitting.

Also located in this gallery is the multi-award winning Reminiscence Cottage - a sensory experience recreating Australian home life from 1930-1950. The cottage is fun exploration for the entire family. It is also designed to support individuals living with dementia.
