An interesting item is what appears to be a concrete planter box overflowing with a creeper. On closer inspection, it is an Annis & George Bills horse trough.

There were over 700 built and distributed, mainly in Victoria and New South Wales.

The town had an extra-terrestrial experience on 28 September 1969 when a meteorite shower descended upon the town and surrounding areas. It is academically claimed to be one of the rarest and primitive meteorites to have landed on earth.
On a sidewall of the centre building is a series of four painted murals by local artist Jane Spencer depicting the reactions of man and beast when the meteorite shower descended.
