The Redlands was a farming community. Transport to get to and from work and move produce was essential, and the Museum’s collection has a good representative sample of different means of transport. This includes twelve horse drawn vehicles, a Cobb & Co coach, four motor vehicles, three motorcycles, a rail motor, and several smaller railway maintenance vehicles. Also in the display are an assortment of transport related equipment, tools, and paraphernalia. Most of these have been restored and are in working order.
The railmotor is a great favourite of children who like to hop aboard and pretend they are taking a journey 80 years ago.
The transport display is enhanced with a large wall mural of the Grand View Hotel on Cleveland Point which has been a popular destination of visitors to this area since its opening in 1851.
