Town Carriage Museum

Flinders Ranges

There's a 1917 first-class railway carriage marooned in a car park on Peterborough's main street! Inside is an interesting history display, covering local Ngadjuri history, early farming, the boom years of Peterborough as a rail hub from the 1880s to the 1920s, then the slow decline of rail transport (and the town) until the 1990s.
