Old Sandalwood Yards and Tipperary School Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Sandalwood was one of the early Colony’s major exports and hundreds of cutters made a living bush-felling the wood which was brought to the yard. It was stacked upright in the open to dry and then carted to Fremantle to be shipped overseas.

Originally located on Tipperary Farm, 8 kilometres north of York, this was one of the very few remaining single teacher school houses in the district. The building was dismantled brick by brick and re-erected at the Sandalwood Yards by a team of dedicated volunteers and members of The York Society.

Old Sandalwood Yards and Tipperary School Museum is open on selected weekends – see website for dates. The Research Centre will be open on Thursdays 10am-2pm.
