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.
