Some good examples include the Age of Fishes Museum at Canowindra, the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum at Bathurst, The International Cricket Hall of Fame at Bowral, Shear Outback: Australian Shearers' Hall of Fame at Hay and the Temora Aviation Museum.

Aboriginal cultural experiences include specialist tours and art galleries.
