On the Move

Ipswich Art Gallery

On the Move is a free family friendly exhibition that explores transport - planes, trains and automobiles - in all its forms, in the Children’s Gallery at the Ipswich Art Gallery until July 18, 2021.

Created by Sydney Living Museums in collaboration with illustrator James Gulliver Hancock, On the Move takes visitors on a journey around Australia, discovering fascinating facts about different modes of transport and vehicles along the way.

Designed specially for children and families, On the Move is a highly engaging exhibition that offers hands-on discovery of incredible journeys, unique inventions, amazing vehicles and intrepid explorers across the county.

The exhibition features fascinating tales of some of Australia’s transport ‘trailblazers’. From John Bradfield, who designed Sydney’s underground electric train system and the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Adam Gilmour, founder of Australia’s leading space technology company. Stories of pioneers include Kathleen Howell, Jean Robertson and their dog Barney, who mapped areas of Australia in their sports car and aviatrix Nancy Bird Walton – the youngest female pilot in Australia.

A highlight is the story of 9 year old Lennie Gwyther who rode his pony, Ginger Mick, 1000kms to witness the opening of Sydney Harbour Bridge.  Lennie met with Prime Minister Joseph Lyons on his way through Canberra and was made part of the bridge opening ceremonies before riding home to rural Victoria.

So, book your free ticket now and journey into an interactive world of transport!
