Full Description


Cobb+Co Museum are home to the National Carriage Collection, Australia’s finest collection of horse-drawn vehicles. As well as Cobb & Coaches, the collection of nearly 50 vehicles ranges from farm wagons to the elegant Landau. Follow the clues, meet intriguing characters and experience the hands-on areas in this brand new interactive gallery.
The original Cobb & Co Coaches are the feature of the collection. These include the last coach which ran from Yuleba to Surat in 1924.
Located in the Garden City of Toowoomba, just west of Brisbane, Cobb+Co Museum also features extensive displays on the natural and cultural history of Toowoomba and the Darling Downs which provides visitors with specific insight into local Indigenous cultures, mega fauna and the development of the region from settlement to today.
From heritage workshops to school holiday programs, there is something for all the family.
