The dairying industry played a critical role in the development of the Moruya district. The exhibition “Milk: The River of Life” explores the history of the industry from the time of early settlers such as Francis Flanagan and John Hawdon up until the present.
Large objects – separators, churns, a cheese press and cheese moulds – are on display as well as smaller objects, including ledgers, silverware, show ribbons and share certificates.
Stunning, original photos by Andrew Metcalf are featured courtesy of the Eurobodalla Shire Council. These photos are on sale for $35 each. Proceeds from the sale of these photographs will go to MDHS and the ESC Heritage fund.
Come along, take a “Selfie With Bessie” and enjoy a Devonshire tea and cheese tasting following the official launch at the museum at 2 pm.
