Murrami: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Rocking Horse Restorations


Rocking Horse Restorations was born in the middle of a ten year drought, when everything on the farm had dried up. No water meant no crops and no livestock.

To ward off depression, Libby Baily began restoring old wooden rocking horses. Since then many horses have bee restored and returned to their families across Australia to be enjoyed by the next generation. Over 11 years of restoration, the Baileys have put together an extensive collection of old wooden rocking horses and horse toys, some dating back 130 years. These horses have been found far and wide even coming from the UK and the US. All very special horses with their own stories to tell.

Inspection welcome by appointment. They can cater for large coach groups.
