Carol says this wonderful museum is a must-see when in Tamworth. There are videos showing how Werris Creek played such an important part of the history of Australia. People who are interested in it and the Australian Railways should visit this place. Carol says she's very interested in this museum since she's an Australian who lives abroad. She wants to see how much the Werris Creek township played such a vital part of the history and this site should be promoted more. Carol says they've got wonderful volunteers too.
Historical records show that one of these two graves belongs to Joseph Fossey who was a surveyor with the Van Diemans Land Company in 1825 and was the man who climbed and named Cradle Mountain in Tasmania amongst other surveying work across Tasmania. One of his collegues was a man called Hellyer who was another surveyor for this company. There is a lot of information in Tasmanian archives about them. It seems a shame that such a valuable historical person is not identified in your heritage information. I think it would further expand the knowledge of the area and its pioneering past if there was some kind of plaque or notice to identify this site. It would only elevate the interest in the local history one would think.
