People Ask About the Unusual Signs on our Garden Sheds etc. So, here you go …

BUNNINGS – Where you go to get all sorts of stuff for building exhibitions, etc.
(“Lower standards are just the beginning”.)
BUGGERY – The Garden Shed, you know, “way to buggery up the back yard!”
THE BUDGIE CAGE – When Uralla Players staged the play “On Our Selection’ in the Mill, this shed served as the actors’ Dressing Room. Our Stage Manager, Phil (“Filthy”) Barnden (one of the funniest blokes I’ve ever met – so quick witted!), let it be known that he had no time for performers. He called them “Budgies – they look pretty and just say what they’re taught to say!”
THE DUNGEON – The back room of the 1878 Stables/Store. All sorts of nasty things end up in there.
DARLING ARBOR – Where bridal parties linger before the ceremony, and often the portal for the arrival of the bride.
COFFS ARBOR – Up the back, for the smokers. TILLY DEVINE – (“the vine”, get it?) Notorious 1920’s Sydney criminal and brothel keeper.
MIRANDA DEVINE – Right-wing journalist for Sydney’s “Daily Telegraph”, etc. (Thought by some to be a “noxious weed”,)
TO LOOS LE TREK – A John Tucek/Mayo creation, after a Sunday Working Bee. There are Toulouse Lautrec prints on the walls inside the toilet block in case you haven’t noticed.
Some visitors delight in having their pic taken with this sign, which proves Museums can entertain!
