The McKay collection is regarded as one of the most significant industrial heritage collections in Australia. It began with donations from Hugh Victor McKay in the early decades of the 20th century, and a number of important family donations were made during the 1960s. The largest donation came as the result of an employee at the Sunshine Harvester Works rescuing material from a dumpster in the 1980s. The collection ranges from the 1880s to the most recent agricultural developments. It features more than 15,000 photographs, 750 films, more than 6,000 trade publications, working models of equipment, a rare Sunshine model 'A' tractor, company archives and the original blacksmith shop where the first stripper harvester was made at Drummartin.
