Shearers Hand Piece
This giant-sized replica stands out in allits glory on top of what locals call the ‘Shearers Shed’, encouraging visitors to investigate what it represents.
At the height of the 1990s shearers from around the State and the nation would come to Pingrup to pit their shearing skills against each other in regular competitions.
The shed is a perfect example of rural ingenuity and resourcefulness. A demonstration of the old adage, ‘He who wastes not, wants not’. Originally used as the CBH (Cooperative Bulk Handling) grain shed and once decommissioned, the Kent Shire, local Lions Club and Pingrup community saw an opportunity to convert the shed into a Shearing Complex. Competitions were held here every year up until 2001.
