Last week I visited the Mount Tamborine Heritage Centre in South East Queensland, Australia, a lush, green mountain with an average rainfall of 1500mls per year. Back in the early 1900′s when Mount Tamborine was settled, it was largely dairy country. Unfortunately dairying has mostly disappeared now, although the area does remain somewhat agriculture as it is also a perfect climate for growing avocados.
I was aware the heritage centre had resurrected one of the old dairy’s from the region called Jenyn’s Dairy. The below photos give a good story about how it was done back then.
