About a year ago I read about a large Pole built wool shed or shearing shed that's somewhere west of Bendigo, and was reopened after renovation. It is one of the largest in the area and possibly Australia. I though it was run by the National trust.

Any way I can't find anything about it on Google or with local tourist offices.

Is there such a thing and if so where?

Thanks

The only pole silo (Shed) I know of is at Murtoa in the Wimmera. It has just been renovated by the National Trust after many years of neglect. Hope this helps you.

Maybe if you can find this book it will give you the answer, simply titled 'Woolsheds' by Andrew Chapman is published by Five Mile Press.

I have seen the book and it was on ABC Landline a while back.

Hope that helps.

Thanks everyone.

Case closed. It is the Murtoa Stick shed that I was looking for.

Thank you very much.

If you are talking about a pole shed then I think you are talking about the Murtoa Stick Shed. It has been restored by the National Trust and is at the grain storage area at Murtoa. I was there last September and it was closed but open the following weekend for the Murtoa festival. The shed is only open to the public on special occassions, but if you google the shed there is a good write up about the history and renovation. Pity its not open to the public as its an impressive structure.
