  • What an outstanding facility for such a small place. An eclectic collection ranging from ancient Aboriginal artefacts, to some very rare and collectable antique tractors. Highly recommended!
  • Every second weekend in October the Spirit of the Land Festival hosts Australia's only National Farm Sculpture Awards for Art created from recycled metal farm materials. The Festival took shape during the worst drought in Lockhart's recorded history. The Festival came about when a local farmer financially and emotionally devastated by the drought began creating art from rusty balls of barb wire fencing. Attracting buyers from the city the family were able to save their farm. The Spirit of The Land Fedtival had proven to be a outstanding success reviving community spirit and putting Lockhart on the tourist map. Some examples of the 2017 sculptures.
