The Pioneer Women’s Hut is one of the best and most unusual small museums in the country.

Cleverly themed, it reflects the ingenuity of women in finding solutions to the challenges of looking after a family in early rural Australia. The accessibility and wonderful stories behind the diverse collection add to its reputation.  Professor Donald Horne in "The Intelligent Tourist " cites the Pioneer Women’s Hut as the most innovative small museum in Australia.

“History is often seen as belonging to the rich and famous but in the end history is not about great events and famous people. It is about ordinary people and their everyday lives. This is what makes us Australians. ” Wendy Hucker 1991
