Parkside Cottage Museum
Parkside Cottage Museum, on Wiradjuri Country, occupies a 100-year-old weatherboard cottage in the town of Narrandera, in the Riverina Murray region of New South Wales.
The museum is operated by the Narrandera and Sturt Historical Society (established 1968) and holds a mixed collection of curiosities and local memorabilia, including a crimson coat made in London from John Macarthur’s early wool clip. Also on display are items associated with the riverboat trade on the Murrumbidgee, an extensive and valuable worldwide collection of shells, a set of silver ingots marking 1,000 years of English monarchy, vintage Telecom Australia equipment and items from Robert Scott’s Antarctic exploration.
