Goolgumbla 2017

The iconic Goolgumbla woolshed, near Jerilderie in southern NSW, was more than 150 years old when it was destroyed by fire in 2012.

The new shed design is a raised 11 stand straight board which gives the shearers their own uninterrupted work area above the wool room floor.  It also lets the shed workers pick up each fleece without bending, saving time and reducing fatigue.

This is our third time shearing in this new woolshed and with about 16,000 sheep to shear between 8 to 10 shearers,  we can testify that it works pretty good!
