Shearing Shed

Shearing Shed - The Village Historic Loxton

This building is a replica of some of the region’s first shearing sheds, and is complete with a wool press, classing table and shearing equipment, including hand shears. This shed is still used for shearing demonstrations on most ‘Village Alive Days’.

One of the oldest Village exhibits, it is a true symbol of the Aussie way of life.

Before the arrival of rail transport in Loxton, wool bales were transported to Adelaide by paddle steamers, where the wool was sold at auction and sent to buyers from across the world.
