A home for Doug’s machinery

KARANGI Vintage Farm Machinery Museum has finally achieved its goal of a home address.

Museum founder Doug Hoschke, who has been lobbying for land for 20 years, said they had been advised by Coffs Harbour City Council they had been allocated the unused portion of council land behind the Orara RFS fire station.

Mr Hoschke said while their next event was a museum display at the Orara Valley Fair on June 14, after that they would apply for grants to build a permanent home for the museum to keep, restore and display the collection, currently occupying farm sheds.
