Browse through the beautifully kept shop which is stocked with an ever changing range of locally made quality craft, country cooking, sewing, knitting, art, woodcraft and souvenir lines, then enjoy morning or afternoon tea and a leisurely stroll around the museum.


Erected in 1911 the building was designed as a shop and dwelling. It was first used as a green grocery and then a saddler and leatherworker. The next occupant, besides mending harness, sold push bikes and motorcycles. The building then became a private home until converted for its current use.

 From the shop visitors then go into the Tourist Information Centre and Museum which has been set out to reflect early settlement of the area. There is a replica of an early Community Hall, Lutheran Chapel, Post Office, Bank and Shops as well as displays showing the Blacksmith, Farming, Mechanical and other aspects of life in a small town.
Almost all the items on display in the museum have been donated and/or collected within the Lameroo area.
