"What an outstanding exhibition! It's a must see for any tourist visiting the Riverina. In both a macro and micro way, featuring personal stories, it explains the origins, history and working of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area, which turned this part of the state from a marginal grazing area into the fruit and rice bowl of Australia." – Colin from Sydney, via Trip Advisor.
