The Windmills Shed
A collection not to be missed! The extremely rare Steel Wings windmill at the entrance to Wimera Farm signal that this is a special visitor experience. The windmill collection, developed by local farmer Jim Sawyer, is housed in two sheds on the family farm, with about 100 restored windmills in the collection. As Jim will tell you, “Without the windmill, there would be no one in the Outback”. Jim has travelled Australia to find windmills, often bringing home only the rusted-out windmill head and gears. He lovingly restores each windmill and spends many hours researching and sourcing parts through his international network of windmill folk. Jim loves windmills so much he even managed to establish two windmills on the highway in and out of Dalwallinu. Look at for the distinctive waving men on the windmills as you drive through town.
