Opening in 2003, The Great Aussie Beer Shed and Heritage Farm Museum is one of the most unique and entertaining tourist attractions in Australia. Situated only 3k from the busy town of Echuca this tour will take you right back down memory lane with an unbelievable display of Aussie Icon paraphernalia including over 17,000 beer cans from Australia and around the world. Other interesting and related items include tap tops, handles, barrels, bottles, signs, brewery manufacturing equipment and machinery.
As you stroll through the Museum you will also see a huge assortment of iconic Aussie products, brand names and machinery like old petrol Bowsers, washing machines, a Coca Cola Collection, kitchen and laundry items and even a partially restored WW1 canon.
Owner Neil Thomas has collected this amazing array of Aussie collectables and is on hand to provide you with an enthusiastic and entertaining guided tour highlighting the history and uniqueness of some of the items in this massive 5,000sq ft. shed.
In 2012 Neil completed the New Heritage Farm Museum with an extensive display of old farming equipment from the late 1800's including almost an entire range of Furphy farm water carts.
The Museum keeps improving and growing. In September 2017 a new section to the Museum was opened known as the Beer Stein and horse drawn carriage Museum. There are approximately 3000 Beer Steins on display. The carriages include an 1890 Dabb and Co Royal Mail Coach,1920 Milk cart,1920 Butchers Cart,1930 Bread Cart,1895 Station Buggy built locally in Rochester,1900 Taxi Cab from Melbourne and a gentleman's Sulky built in Grafton in 1905. All are in fantastic condition and most are fully restored.
