“It could be as nostalgic as a toy steam train, romantic as an Edison Phonograph or as muscular as a cane train. No matter what it is, each display tells us something more about how our regional communities lived and progressed,” Cr Baberowski added.

“The museums make for an exceptional low-cost day out during the school holidays and the quiz offers families a way to explore our incredible heritage in a fun, meaningful and even more rewarding way,” he said.
