This is a nice small museum, telling you the story of the Australian stage coach and more. There was a Leonardo de Vinci Exhibition, all very nice arranged. The workshop tells you how these old carriages were built.

It is a Café and Museum. Meals were great but vegetarian limited. There was a Da Vinci display and a Life size model of his tank. Very hands on, great for kids, workshops run throughout the years. Awesome Collection of Carriages and Buggies.

Reasonably good, especially for a country town. DaVinci display had a lot of potential but was lacking any hands on activity.
