Boolcoomatta woolshed

on 22 Sep 2016 

Cultural layers cross all the lands and Boolcoomatta is no different. 

The massive stone woolshed at Boolcoomatta is coming up to 150 years old. With this in mind we've put out a call to skilled volunteers from the Broken Hill community to help us with ongoing maintenance of this magnificent building.

During a recent working bee, the woolshed had a clean out as part of an assessment of the priority works to be competed.

Amazingly, like all the stone buildings on-site, it's constructed from creek sand, lime and local stone. 

All maintenance will be completed with traditional methods, maintaining the aesthetic, construction, and cultural integrity of the building.

In time we hope that the wool baling and storage room will be a space to communicate, celebrate and display all elements of the past, present and living cultures of Boolcoomatta and the surrounding region.
