Located between Young, Boorowa and Cowra, Murringo is small but perfectly formed with heritage buildings and a vibrant village community.
A remnant of a bygone era, Murringo was once home to gold prospectors dreaming of making their fortunes. Today, the Taubman and Webb Trading Post is a Murringo must-see. Coronation Collectables located in Murringo’s historic police station, is a treat for antique collectors. The oldest village in the region, Murringo has several Georgian cottages and the 1862 schoolhouse is still educating our local children. The village has fine stone buildings, including two churches, and its cemetery is worth a visit.
HANDMADE WHIPS & WINE TASTING
A visit to the bushman museum and tribute centre at the Taubman and Webb Trading Post (which also doubles as a wine tasting venue for nearby Trandari Wines) is a must!
The Museum and Tribute Centre to the late Bushman & whip maker, Syd Bayliss, and to Richard Taubman who has kept his trades and stories alive for over 30 years. On display are many leather products, artifacts, tools and items used by Syd and Richard. On sale are numerous plaited leather products, hats, boots and much more. The Centre also acts as a Cellar Door for nearby Trandari Wines. Murringo is part of the Hilltops Wine Region which surrounds Young.
Richard has been a whip maker for 40 years and has always promoted his mentor, Syd Bayliss. The Taubman & Webb Trading Post is the culmination of himself and his wife Leah’s effort to ensure such valuable Australian heritage is preserved. Murringo Village Markets are held quarterly.
