Texas Rabbit Works

19th May 2021

In 1928, the Rabbit Works were built to eradicate the plague of rabbits taking over farms and destroying crops. Employing 33 people and processing 6,000 rabbits a day the rabbit works was a major business in the district. By trapping and selling rabbits for export to America and England the town managed to survive the Great Depression.

Restoration of the building began in 2002 and in 2016; Texas Qld Inc. and the Goondiwindi Regional Council began a major refurbishment project to retain this unique piece of Australian history.

The Rabbit Works are now a museum where visitors can experience interactive displays and discover the history behind the last rabbit processing works in Australia
