Inglewood Eucalyptus Distillery site offers a tourist attraction set on the site of the historic Jones Eucalyptus Distillery. This is a unique interactive experience that highlights the importance of the eucalyptus industry to the district.
There is a tribute to Eucalyptus Polybractea, the "blue eucy", and an exploration of the history and archaeology of how eucalyptus was and is now distilled. The site highlights the ingenuity of the distillers, the hard work of the "eucy" cutters and of the social and economic impact of the industry.
Located on the northern side of Inglewood, the museum is some 50 kilometres west of Bendigo and two hours from the centre of Melbourne. The new Museum was opened in July 2011.
Eucalyptus Distillery Museum is open on the weekends, with toilets on site as well as a car park, a kiosk and a gift shop that sells eucalyptus oil.
The museum has an increasing collection of eucalyptus history, art works and working model distillery.
This is an ideal day trip, located in the historic gold township of Inglewood, which now features an increasing range of antiques and collectables.
Come and visit, the staff at Eucalyptus Distillery Museum would love to show you around.
