The Tumut Broom Factory is the last original Millet Broom Factory in Australia. The Factory is located in Tumut, a small town in the Snowy Mountains. Handmade millet brooms have been made at the factory the same way since 1946, and can be found Australia wide.

We invite you to drop in to the Factory and experience the magic of the broom making tradition.

Visitors to the factory will be able to view the broom manufacturing process firsthand and purchase their own millet broom at the end.

Pre-booked tours of the factory are available for coach groups, please contact the Broom Factory for further details. Tours include the history of the Millet Broom making tradition and the secrets behind the art of handmade millet brooms – from growing the millet through to sewing the broom.

Parking is available out the front of the Broom Factory, which is conveniently located opposite the Visitors Centre.

Take time out to visit the Tumut Broom Factory and learn about this historic Australian industry.
