This quaint museum pays homage to the transport riders who played an important role in the development of Ceres, which was relatively inaccessible before the completion of Michell’s Pass. Later transport became a major industry, and wagons were used by farmers well into the 20th century. Here you can learn more about the natural history of the area, as well as the early inhabitants and their lifestyle.

Open 8.30am-5pm (closed 1-2pm) Mon-Fri; 9am-noon Sat during school holidays.

Admission R5 adults; 50c children.

No credit cards are accepted.
