Yesterday we when in search of a factory we had heard about in Gormandale. As we approached the village there was no doubt that the old Gormandale Co-Op Butter Factory Co Ltd was the building we had heard about.
It was raining but I jumped out and started taking photos quickly attracting the attention of the owner. He told us that the factory had been built in 1947 and was the first fully automated butter factory in Australia.
The owner showed us around inside but there wasn't really any deco features left and he told us the butter factory had closed in the mid 1970s.
