Waratah Historic Buildings

Historic buildings

Standing strong as the town’s original courthouse, the preservation of the Waratah Museum allows visitors to gain an insight into mining life in the 1800s. Entry to the museum is free to see its collection of local historical artifacts, photos and personal stories. A stroll next door to the replica of James ‘Philosopher’ Smith’s hut demonstrates the conditions of miners during those early days.
