Roy Emerson Museum, Blackbutt

The Roy Emerson Museum, a Place for Memories and Public Enjoyment, collects oral histories, newspaper articles and photos and items for display. These relate to life in Benarkin, Blackbutt, Taromeo, Nukku, Gilla and Googa from 1842 onward with particular emphasis on the railway, the timber industry and internationally recognised tennis professional Roy Emerson.

The museum and its beautifully landscaped gardens are only a part of the total parklands area currently being developed near where the Blackbutt Memorial Hall is now situated​

The Blackbutt and District Tourism and Heritage Association is also responsible for other tourist attractions in the district such as Jesse’s Well at Taromeo, Nukku Siding (on site), and wagon displays in both Benarkin and Blackbutt.

Other suggestions would be the tennis courts, Tractor and Car Museum (open by appointment), The Benarkin General Store and free camp site, Taromeo Station Homestead and Stone Walled Cemetery (open by appointment), Blackbutt Golf Club, Janet Skinner Gallery, we have three historic churches, the Memorial Monument, and the Archie Muir Centre (Blackbutt Council Office).
