Old Errowanbang Woolshed to recreate history this weekend

HISTORY will be recreated at Old Errowanbang Woolshed from 2pm on November 17, when the aim will be to get 40 blade shearers on the board working in unison.

The woolshed at Old Errowanbang will be open to the public for four days from November 15 to 18. During the four days there will be entertainment and activities for the whole family.

The woolshed is open to the public in an effort to raise funds to maintain this piece of Australian heritage for future generations.

The woolshed is built across four levels into the hillside and boasts 40 stands. Built in 1886 and costing A 5000, five tonnes of nails and bolts were used. In one season 90,000 sheep were shorn at Old Errowanbang.

Highlights in the line-up of activities include a 12-horse drawn wool cart, a quick shear competition, helicopter rides and market stalls.

"This is a picturesque setting to witness shearing before mechanisation and see the impressive woolshed.

"The open days will be enjoyable and entertaining for everyone that visits," Jann Harries, Old Errowanbang said.
