Corfield and Fitzmaurice

This magnificent example of a general store is heritage listed by the National Trust. Opened by partners Corfield and Fitzmaurice in 1878, it was Winton's first general store, serving people of the township and pastoral properties until 1987.

Today it houses in part of the building Combo Crafts, which has a great selection of handmade crafts.

The remaining part of the building incorporates a mini museum, which requires a cover charge for entry. It consists of the Dinosaur Diorama, an interpretation of the dinosaur stampede found at Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways. Also in the Corfield and Fitzmaurice building is a mini-museum of dinosaur fossils by the Australian Age of Dinosaurs, including the story of 'Elliot', once the largest dinosaur find in Australia, a wool industry display, a display about the opal mining industry at Opalton and an historical account of Corfield and Fitzmaurice general store.
