Collection

The collection at the Pioneer Women’s Hut is shown in changing themes relating to domestic life and other roles of women such as “another pair of hands” and earning cash income.


Some of the themes are Never Done, Time for Fancywork, Coping with Flies and many others.


The museum is rich in objects – aprons, bush quilts, doilies, improvised kitchen utensils, rag rugs, patched clothing and much more.


Don a pair of white gloves and you can pick up an object, feel the weight, or examine the stitching more closely.


The accessibility, focus on the ordinary, and the emphasis on the stories make the Pioneer Women’s Hut unique.
