Coach House Gallery
Original General Store & Museum

Time capsules are normally sealed and buried out of sight for decades, but Wedderburn boasts one that’s flourishing in full view.

Coach house Gallery museumThe Coach House Gallery and Museum, standing proud in the town’s main street, is a perfectly preserved 100-year-old general store which looks the same as the day the owners walked out for the last time.

The enterprise has two faces – an exhibition space administered by the Loddon Arts Group alongside a general store displaying goods originally stocked during the early decades of the 20th century.

The store was built in 1913 as an upgrade to the then existing business, which opened in the 1840s.

On the shelves are such everyday household necessities as a wire cheese slicer, rows of biscuit tins, meat safes and an original carved-wood Yates seed display with a bunch of hand-drawn packets of seeds.

A basement and cellar are set up with historic photos, wheelwrights’ tools, replicas of gold nuggets unearthed locally and the original printing press from the old Wedderburn town paper of 1888-1932.

Out the back is the cart once used by an old Indian hawker, a horse-drawn hearse and a blacksmith’s forge.
