Batchelor Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Batchelor has unique history which the Museum keeps alive, showcasing aspects of aboriginal culture and the Federal Government’s agricultural plans of 1911.
In WWII, Batchelor became a strategic base for the Pacific region. Rum Jungle Uranium Mine was established in 1952, the major economic activity in Australia at the time.
With so much to take in, expect to spend an hour or two at this fascinating museum. Then, enjoy a cuppa at our new coffee shop, Barking Owls.
