An hour outside of Melbourne is the satellite city of Geelong. Known today as a commercial center and industrial port, Geelong was once the prosperous hub of all wool production in Australia.
Honoring the city’s proud textile and manufacturing history, the National Wool Museum exhibits the industry’s trials and tribulations—from Australia’s colonial days to the wool production boom of the 1950s, through the industry’s collapse in the 1990s.
