Goomalling School Museum

Remember the days of the old school yard

You can't miss this museum: look out for the vintage school bus next to the old Headmaster’s house. Inside, the museum feels like someone just upped and left the house, without packing up, and just closed the door behind them. There are items from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, including a fabulous original ice chest in the kitchen which matches the cabinets. If you're a fan of the décor, with a full set of kitchen utensils and items, you could probably move right in! Discover more Goomalling history through the machinery shed and the old Konnongorring School building. Look back at the old school days with items from Goomalling and Konnongorring schools. The site is also on the official register of Australasian School Museums. The headmaster’s house contains local history books and photographs of residents, including photos of Goomalling Road Board members. The original Road Board table and chairs are also part of the collection.
