Warracknabeal Historical Society

Celebrating the history of Victoria’s farming heartland. 


Preserving history

The Warracknabeal and District Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the history of Warracknabeal and surrounding districts, from the life of early inhabitants through to the present time. Warracknabeal is located in the heart of the Victorian wheat belt and the Historical Society’s collection celebrates Victoria’s farming heritage and the people who contributed to its success. With a long history of innovation and the landscape dotted with iconic grain silos that now make up part of Victoria’s Silo Art Trail.



Housed in Warracknabeal’s first State Savings Bank, the Warracknabeal Historical Centre houses a collection of items that make up the history of a typical Wimmera town.  The display consists of furniture, pictures, maps, kitchen utensils and the personal items found in the homes of the pioneers of the area.
