CUSTOMS HOUSE MUSEUM CUSTOMS HOUSE MUSEUM

Discover local history at our Customs House Museum. A border customs point before Federation, this authentically restored building and its surrounding buildings house a rich and colourful collection of mementos of yesteryear.

The quality of materials, form of construction and craftsmanship all suggest that the Customs House was constructed in the 1870s-1880s.  Originally a four roomed cottage, the two rear rooms were only accessed from the rear verandah. Oral history records that the building was used by the NSW Customs Department.

 

Visit the Pioneer Shed which houses the history of the growth of wool and agriculture in this area. See a display of early tools, Blacksmith’s Workshop and the story of Chinese in Goondiwindi.

Visit Martha’s Kitchen, browse through the War Display in Burke’s Cottage and relax awhile in our beautiful grounds.
