The Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (M.A.D.E) is an Australian museum, which engages visitors in the compelling story of democracy. The stories are told of the ordinary men and women, past and present, which have fought for the democratic freedoms we enjoy today.
Located on the historic site of the 1854 Eureka Stockade, M.A.D.E explores the powerful story of Eureka as a significant part of the struggle for peoples’ rights in Australia and around the world.
Saltbush Kitchen at M.A.D.E is a modern, beautiful space overlooking the Eureka Park Memorial gardens and lake. Sweeping windows take in the panorama as you enjoy the finest refreshments from our menu.
Saltbush Kitchen offers a quality menu sourced from fresh, local produce and cooked on site. Brigid Corcoran specializes in bringing delicious native flavours to your meal. We cater for any dietary requirements, and offer a selection of hot and cold food, soft drinks, fine espresso coffee and refined teas.
