The Quairading Vintage Club

A scale model road train, one of the districts oldest tractors, and everything in between!

The Quairading Vintage Club was originally formed in the 1980s by a group of farmers and locals from the district. In 2018 the Vintage Club became associated with the Men’s Shed. The collection started with tractors, engines and machinery donated by a local mechanic, and by various farmers within the district. The Vintage Club has a fully equipped workshop which is used to restore the exhibits. While you're in Quairading, you may like to also visit the nearby Railway Museum.
