Don't go looking for this attraction at this address as it's not here, nor is the Visitor's Centre. We found the Visitor's Centre near the corner of The Ringers Road and the New England Highway. We didn't find this museum there either but a couple of other exhibitions which were $10 each per adult and $8 for those with a... More

This was just a fabulous step back in time. My Aunty is actually featured in the Museum and it was so nice seeing her costumes and reading about things I wasn't around for!

This was an excellent display and very interesting to Country Music Fans (my husband) and those who are just interested in music and the history of Country Music in Australia (me). Thoroughly enjoyed this museum.

This is in the back of the Visitor Information Centre building which is shaped like a guitar. The ladies in the VIC were very helpful and knowledgeable on the area. The Museum follows the history of country music in Australia and has a lot of old pieces. Well worth the small fee to get in.

very good but some of the video displays have been reduced compared to last time we visited. Good value for money with reduced rates for seniors

Found this very interesting and full of great information from the birth of country music in Australia to the present day. Everything is very well laid out and you can easily spend a few hours engrossed in all things country.
