The Jindera Pioneer Museum is a treasure trove of history and culture, recreating the life of early German settlers in Jindera using only local relics. The site is home to several historic buildings, including the Wagner’s Store and Residence, an authentically furnished slab hut, a post office, a blacksmiths shop and a wattle and daub hut, thought to be the oldest remaining cottage or house in the Albury district.
When you step through the doors of the Wagner’s Store, it’s as if you are transported back through time. The building has been restored and furnished to recreate its 19th-century appearance, with original shop fittings and authentic 19th-century goods stocking the shelves. It is truly a sight to behold. Make your way through the 25 rooms on the two-acre complex, discovering galleries, historical treasures and an impressive display of historic machinery and transport.
