Residents of Toowoomba Region will keep enjoying free entry to Cobb+Co Museum after Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) ratified it’s financial commitment to the scheme at this week’s Ordinary Meeting.

TRC Environment and Community Portfolio Chair Cr James O’Shea said Cobb+Co Museum had a plethora of activities on offer for families which could be enjoyed free of charge thanks to TRC’s financial commitment.

“Just in time for the September school holidays, TRC has ensured that Toowoomba Region residents will continue to be granted free entry to Cobb+Co simply by showing proof of residency.

“TRC pays the State Government for your entry, and we are proud to do so, especially for families and school groups.

“This is just one of the ways Council gives back to the community and I encourage as many families as possible to get out and get involved with the school holiday activities on offer at Cobb+Co Museum in Lindsay Street,” Cr O’Shea said.

Cobb+Co Museum is part of the Queensland Museum and is home to the National Carriage Collection.

As well as Cobb & Co coaches, the collection includes examples of a vast range of vehicles from the horse-drawn era, from farm wagons and delivery carts to the Rolls Royce of Carriages, the landau.

“Visit Cobb+Co’s web site to find out what’s on and keep enjoying free entry thanks to TRC,” Cr O’Shea said.
