MilkBars around Australia are diminishing rapidly which is sad to say, but that’s one of the main reasons why this website evolved, to keep those memories alive.
Peter’s Milk Bar is now 6 years old. This site is a hobby, and updated or added to when I create time. NB. All photos within these pages are taken from my own collection unless specified ©.
…. Some Milkbars have survived economic hardship that was due to competition from the big guys, and others are being re-instated /refurbished for nostalgia reasons.
On This Site people can browse & comment on Australian things from the days of gone, of when we were kids and used to hang out at the local Milk Bar, especially in summer for a Peter’s Icecream and or Sunny Boy.
I created this site back in 2012, it has progressed as I have the time… so come and hang with us…. Let’s talk Milk Bar Memorabilia.
