Museum and Old Police Station

The Morawa District Historical Society was first formed in May 1973. Its main objective was to retain a historical record of the district. Relocation of the original Old Gaol and Courthouse, in 1975, from Stokes Road to its current position, in Prater Street, was one of the first projects undertaken. Unfortunately the original horse stables associated with this building had been removed.

The Old Gaol and Courthouse now forms the centrepiece of the Morawa Museum. The Museum houses a truly remarkable collection of windmills as well as examples of vintage farm machinery and equipment.

The windmill collection is renowned world wide and is the subject of The Windmill Journal. This publication is produced quarterly by the Morawa District Historical Society and is distributed world wide.

Open hours Monday-Saturday 9.30am-4.00pm.
Also open Sundays by appointment through the Tourist Centre.
