Koobabbie Precinct

Relocating Koobabbie Farm, kitchen sink and all.

This collection was saved by Coorow Heritage Group, after it was gifted three buildings and the farming equipment from a historically significant farm. Find out about the history of Samuel Rudduck and the generations of family members who farmed at Koobabbie from 1906 to 2021. The site includes the maid’s room and storeroom, single men’s accommodation and the oat bin. The extensive farm machinery collection includes a rare two-cylinder portable steam engine, which sits in pride of place at the entrance to the grounds.
