Cobb + Co Museum

Toowoomba

Cobb + Co Museum, a must visit if in Toowoomba, is home to Australia’s finest collection of horse-drawn vehicles.

The National Carriage Collection features an extraordinary array of historic horse-drawn vehicles, including Cobb + Co coaches, farm wagons and delivery carts.

On show are some 47 types of vehicles that have all played a significant role in Queensland’s social and economic development and visitors can learn all about it through interactive displays and daily guided tours.
