Famous for: The Amusu Theatre (Australia’s oldest continuously operating picture theatre) and Manildra Flour Mill (largest in the Southern Hemisphere)
Historical Milestones: The historic Amusu Theatre actually commenced as a travelling picture show in 1923 and the theatre itself has been screening films regularly since 1936! The art deco Amusu Theatre still operates today entertaining visitors with new releases in an old world, charming setting. The Flour Mill commenced operations in 1952.
What you can expect now: Manildra lies on the banks of the Mandagery Creek halfway between Orange and Parkes. There’s a pub, general store, gift shops and museums to browse as well.
