Deniliquin Attractions

Peppin Heritage Centre
The Peppin Heritage Centre is an ideal starting point for visitors to Deniliquin. Incorporating the visitor information centre, the building was Deniliquin's first public school and has now been transformed into a regional museum that houses permanent exhibitions, as well as hosting a number of travelling exhibitions.

One of the stories in the museum is about the Peppin family, after whom the museum is dedicated. In 1858 the English sheep breeders, George Hall Peppin and his two sons, took up Wanganella run. The family developed a breed of Merino sheep that was more suited for the Australian conditions. The new breed of sheep produced greater quantity and quality of wool. Today the Wanganella bloodline forms the foundation of more than 90% of the nation's flock.
