Explore and Discover McCrossin’s Mill Museum

    We strive to be open every day of the year.

              10am – 4pm


Built in 1870, McCrossin’s Mill is a lovingly restored three storey flour mill which now houses a multi-award winning Museum, Gallery and Function Centre.

Many locals once believed the “Old Mill” to be haunted. Now it is hauntingly beautiful.

McCrossin’s Mill Museum is renowned for its empathetic, humorous and even bizarre exhibitions. Its collection of Chinese artefacts from the Rocky River Goldfields is recognised as being of National Significance, other exhibitions include: Thunderbolt: Life and Legend; A Dark Red Rose: Corporal Cecil Stoker’s Story, Trickett’s Triumph; Australia’s First World Champion and Sunny Jim Mackay of Uralla; Best batsman in the world and much more.
