Wellstead Museum

The history of the Wellstead family as farmers on the South Coast stretches back over 180 years. The family history is entwined within the vast collection amassed by descendent Max Wellstead, born in 1936, who opened this museum at the old family farm in 2003. Historic farming tools and machinery tell of a time when physical strength and perseverance were essential ingredients in farming and self-sufficiency.
