Jack Howe Gallery - Blackall


John Robert "Jackie" Howe (26 July 1861 (?) – 21 July 1920) was a legendary Australian sheep shearer at the end of the 19th century. He shot to fame in pre-Federation Australia in 1892 when he broke the daily and weekly shearing records across the colonies.

RvTrips' review

04 Feb 2017

The Universal Garden Centre and Gallery houses is easy to find in the main street  of Blackall - just look for the a statue of the famous shearer, Jackie Howe sitting at the entrance.  There is a small fee to enter the Jackie Howe museum to find out about this amazing man who set a blade sharing record in 1892 which has never been beaten.  He also set the machine shearing record which was not broken for 58 years. I love to read the history of these amazing men of the outback - Jack Howe was a publican, car dealer, grazier, father and a notable public figure.  All this and he died at the age of 59.

The Universal Garden Centre and Gallery also has:

  • tourist information
  • displays on the history of Blackall
  • souvenirs
  • gifts
  • plants and garden products

This is a great place to visit when you want to find out about the local area.
