Reginald Murray Williams Australian Bush Learning Centre

Reginald Murray Williams Australian Bush Learning Centre

The Reginald Murray Williams Australian Bush Learning Centre (RMWABLC) was built to honour this great Australian and pay tribute to the bush skills and culture that the bush was founded upon. Here visitors can learn about RM Williams’ story, bush skills, Indigenous artifacts, view the Dot Hamilton cattle exhibition, be inspired with bush poetry, and appreciate the skills shared in a leathercraft workshop or demonstration. The Centre also has a modern gallery space and exhibits many talented local and travelling artists.

Eidsvold is the self-proclaimed ‘Beef Capital’ of the North Burnett and has a rich history of successful cattle properties, droving teams and record sized cattle sales. Eidsvold is also where Mr Williams chose to settle after leaving South Australia in the 1950’s, seeking a challenge and settling on a property along the Auburn River near Eidsvold. Mr William’s connection to Eidsvold is apparent still today, with reminders of his tenure in the small community’s various stone buildings and numerous friendly locals sharing their stories. Mr Williams’ property ‘Rockybar’ is also his final resting place, where he is at peace in the quiet bush outside of Eidsvold.

The Centre is situated along Australia’s Country Way, the A3, and is only a short walk to town, close the bushland, Showgrounds, Golf Course and Saleyards.

The Centre also offers a pet-friendly, self-contained RV Stop for $10 / van / night. Toilets are available for campers.

The Son et Lumiere is the outdoor Light and Sound Show held every night at the Centre.

Please be advised the Light Show is currently unavailable due to weather damaging equipment. We apologise for the inconvenience. 

Playing at 7pm and 8pm, this must-see show shares the story of Reginald Murray Williams, with local story tellers, poets, and drovers sharing interesting stories of life in the bush. The Show is projected onto a customised steel Sculpture called the ‘Language of the Land’.

Currently, the equipment used to project the show is damaged and being repaired, resulting in the show being unavailable.  Please check in with our friendly staff before scheduling a visiting to watch the show to ensure that it is up and running.

Extraordinary 8-year-old Artist Lucinda Dumont Unveils “Mythical Faces” Exhibition

Renowned self-taught painter Lucinda Dumont is set to captivate art enthusiasts with her vibrant and unconventional artistry in her latest exhibition titled “Mythical Faces.” Dumont, whose work has drawn comparisons to a fusion of Ken Done’s exuberance, Andy Warhol’s pop art flair, and Pablo Picasso’s innovative spirit, promises an unparalleled visual experience that challenges traditional norms.

“Mythical Faces” is a celebration of Dumont’s fearless approach to colour and form, offering a glimpse into a world where boundaries are shattered and imagination reigns supreme. Each piece in the collection showcases Dumont’s signature style—bold, expressive, and brimming with vitality.
