Regional Development Minister Hon Don Punch MLA has officially opened the new visitor hub at Wooleen Station yesterday, which is set to diversify the tourism experience in the Murchison.

The owners of Wooleen Station, David and Frances Pollock, have relocated and refurbished a 100-year-old shearer's shed kitchen and have transformed it into its reception, café and art studio.

Originally situated 7km from the homestead, it's relocation to the entry of Wooleen Station will provide a distinct focal point for visitors with its curved, domed tin roofline.

While not heritage listed, given its age and architectural construction, the structure holds regional significance, so creatively repurposing it as tourism infrastructure preserves its integrity and the history of the area.

The building will enhance the quality of visitor experiences, support Aboriginal culture, retain local heritage and create awareness of regenerative and sustainable pastoralism to enable local and regional economic growth.

The project was supported by a $100,000 Regional Economic Development (RED) Grant.
