HISTORY will come alive at the Old Errowanbang Woolshed near Carcoar this weekend when the doors to the historic shed open for two days.
Built in 1886 at a cost of Â£5000, the shed once saw 90,000 sheep shorn in a single season.
This weekend there will be blade shearing demonstrations with local shearers inviting the public to a witness the long-lost art.
The expansive grounds will also host a vintage car display, helicopter rides and market stalls.
Owner Jann Harries said the open days are a great opportunity to jump in the car and head towards Carcoar to be a part of history.
“It’s unique in the fact that the shed is such a big building,” she said.
“There’s nothing like it in Australia in design.”
The last open day at the woolshed was in November, 2012, when more than 5000 people flocked to take in the history.
“Come along for a Saturday or Sunday drive ... it’s only open once year,” Mrs Harries said.
There will be tours of the shed on offer.
This weekend will also be the launch of the Old Errowanbang Woolshed book, featuring a wealth of history on the shed, as well as photos from last year’s open day.
Mrs Harries said funds raised from the open days will go to maintaining this piece of Australian heritage for future generations.
The Old Errowanbang Woolshed will be open from 9am to 4pm each day.
Entry cost is $10 for adults and a gold coin donation for children.
There is no wheelchair access.
