New Italy Museum


The New Italy Museum was developed as a tribute to the courage and strength of early Italian pioneering families, who survived a perilous journey and then through hard work and with great spirit, realised their dream of establishing a prosperous home and community in Australia. The museum is custodian to many exceptional artifacts including the original travelling trunk that belonging to one of New Italy’s first setters. Evidence of the industry on which the New Italy settlement was developed includes an impressive heritage fabric collection and everyday farming implements. A Wagga quilt made from mens’ suit material and a collection of Bocce balls provides an insight into activities within the community.

The Italian Pavilion tells the story of Italian immigration and its impact on the development of regional Australia.
