  • Opening of the restored Old Store at the Yanko

    Celebrating restoration of Yanko Station’s Old Store and discover life on a remote station before trucks and trains.

    Self-sufficiency was essential on remote pastoral stations before trucks and trains regularly delivered produce to the Riverina. The recently restored Old Store at Yanko Station, north of Jerilderie, is a classic example of the level of self-sufficiency required.

    Join us on Monday 21 October for an open day to celebrate the restoration of the Old Store and installation of interpretative displays.

    The solid two-story brick store was constructed in the 1870s to a high standard and included all the facilities needed for the daily operations of Yanko station. This included a shop supplying non-perishable goods, a post office, bookkeeper’s office, livery, gaol and later a telephone exchange.

    This two-phase project involved restoration of the Old Store through drainage improvements, repair of brick work, external painting of doors and windows and replacing the roof. Phase two developed an interpretation and display area for visitors in three of the Old Store rooms and an education package for school groups.

    The Open day runs from 10.00am to 12.30pm and includes entry to interpretation rooms, morning tea and opportunity to learn about the history of Yanko Station.

    Owners and managers of local heritage items are encouraged to attend to gain an insight into the different approaches needed for a working on a heritage building.

    The opening is part of the Yanko Store restoration project supported by the NSW Government through the Heritage Near Me program.

    Yanko Store opening details: Monday 21 October 2019 10.00am to 12.30pm Morning Tea provided by Jerilderie CWA
