Birdsville Museum Closes

Birdsville’s remarkable Working Museum closed last September. See

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-09-20/birdsvilles-working-museum-closes/2907730.

It housed an amazing and eclectic collection of all manner of machines and artifacts from Australia’s rural past, and was a “must see” item for visitors to Birdsville, one of Australia’s iconic Outback towns.

An article in New Matilda (http://newmatilda.com/2011/12/15/outback-history)  ponders the significance of this event. Are we at risk of forgetting about our pastoral history?

Writing about the things that interest me helps me to discover what I think. One of my loves is the Australian Outback, and I travel out there often, and when possible take friends with me.
