A visit to Cobb+Co museum is a must - the exhibitions are well presented and interesting, the kids activities are fun and engaging, and you can finish off your outing with a delicious treat at the on-site cafe. Great outing for the family:)

A wonderful trip back into Australian history - some of which is still alive today. The working blacksmith shop is an eye-opener to the skills of yester-year and the coach exhibits probably the best I have seen anywhere. Well worth the trip.
