Your rural retreat in the Snowy Mountains won’t be complete without a visit to the Tumut Broom Factory; the last remaining Millet Broom Factory in Australia.
The factory has been operational since 1946, originally opening as the ‘Tumut Rural Co-Operative millet Society’, and continues to produce millet brooms to this day
Factory visitors are able to view the broom manufacturing process, and find out the history of the trade and the factory itself, before purchasing their own millet broom at the end.
Just a 20 minute drive from Elm Cottage, the Tumut Broom Factory is open to the public 9am-5pm weekdays, and some weekends, and can be found on the Adelong Road, Tumut.
