New Italy Museum & Cafe – A Living Heritage



Located on the Pacific Highway just 12 km south of Woodburn in Northern NSW, the New Italy Museum Complex is a unique tourist attraction.



The Museum was developed as a tribute to the courage and strength of the pioneering emigrants from Veneto in Northern Italy who survived a disastrous voyage to Australia and, defying the odds, created a Garden of Eden from a parcel of sterile forest.  The Italian Pavilion tells the story of 200 years of Italian immigration and its impact on the development of this nation. 


Today’s Italian community still holds strong ties to the area, commemorating and celebrating the settlement of previous generations through regular festivities and in the cultural centre and museum that is housed at the site right on the Pacific Highway.


Take yourself in to another world and treat yourself to a rest from driving. You can tempt your taste buds with the culinary delights on offer in the cafe, or a delicious coffee to brighten you up and discover the Italian story. Plenty of parking and room for the children to get rid of some energy! For more information before you arrive, click on the following link and check out the full story on their website:
