I have long been a fan of country music and there is no one that personifies country music in Australia than Slim Dusty. He is a true legend. Covid has meant the Centre has been closed for a long time and I was lucky that it had only just reopened the day before my visit. How lucky was that?
Word hadn’t got out that it had reopened so I was lucky that the centre was fairly quiet which made it great for absorbing all the information and listening to the recordings and the videos.
All Slim’s golden guitars are on display as well as his gold and platinum records. Even the car and caravan he and wife Joy toured Australia in bringing music to the people was on display.
There is also an art gallery within the centre which is situated just off the M1 Motorway at South Kempsey.
Anyone who appreciates music, appreciates country music, or appreciates Australian history will love this place. It has been tastefully designed and I recommend anyone to spend a couple of hours here. Under $20 entry fee.
