Clayton Farm Heritage Museum



A visit to Bordertown would not be complete without spending some time at the faithfully restored Clayton Farm.

You will experience farm life as it was more than a century ago when the original settlers, the Wiese family, first occupied this land.

The Wiese family occupied Clayton Farm until 1981, when Mr Jeff Wiese reached agreement with the Bordertown & Dist Agicultural Museum to lease an area of 3.48 hectares of land containing an outstanding collection of historic buildings.

Visitors can now wander though historic buildings, such as the homestead (c1885), silage and pigsty and the woolshed - the largest thatched-roof woolshed in the southern hemisphere - or marvel at the extensive collection of farm machinery that is preserved by the custodians of Clayton Farm.

While you're there enjoy a tasty morning tea, lunch or dinner but bookings are essential.

Open Hours:

Monday, Wednesday & Friday - 11am to 4pm. Sunday 1pm to 5pm.

Closed Good Friday and Christmas Day. Other times by appointment.

Buses and school groups are welcome.
