Attraction Information

Established in 1922 the Hillbrush Company has too rich of a history to be hidden from the public and this is all on display for you to see at the visitor centre!

Hillbrush now produces almost three thousand different products, supplies to over 90 countries across the globe, the history of this family based business really is something to behold. Watch as the story of two young brothers Fred and Bill Coward unfolds as they start a little business that grows into a huge international market leader!

Let the little ones explore the interactive Kid’s Corner with fun activity booklets for them to complete and then grab a family meal at the locally sourced cafe. The brothers have worked through wars, hosted the Queen, travelled around the world and even purchased additional companies, this story is second to none and not to be missed!
