Cobb and Co Museum is home to the National Carriage Collection, Australia’s largest collection of horse-drawn vehicles. The collection includes three Cobb and Co coaches on permanent display, including the last of the operational coach on the Yuleba-Surat run in 1924.
Highlights of the Toowoomba and Darling Downs displays are the natural environment of the Escarpment of the Great Dividing Range; personal stories linked to Toowoomba’s icons and multicultural traditions; ‘Binangar’, the Aboriginal language centre with traditional and contemporary indigenous displays; and ‘The Coach Stop’ rated by visitors as the best children’s activity centre.
Cobb and Co Museum’s Gift Shop contains Cobb and Co research publications, reproductions of maps and photographs, children’s books, and quality Australian-made gifts and souvenirs.
The Museum is climate controlled and fully wheelchair accessible. Guide dogs are permitted. Parking for coaches is at the entrance to the Museum.
Friendly staff are always available to answer any questions about the Museum, local history and other places of interest in the area that visitors may like to see.
