Farina Collection

During the restoration activities over the last 15 years, the group has uncovered many items around the site and has also had donations of items small and large, associated with Farina.

A number of small items are on display in Patterson’s House and some large railway items on display in the Railway Precinct.

The Farina Restoration Group committee of management has put in place a policy governing the Farina Museum Collection which can be read by clicking this link.
