Mallala Museum: New Transport Gallery Opening

Transport is vital to small towns and communities in rural areas. From the early days when the first white settlers arrived with all their wordly goods in horse drawn wagons and children rode horses to school. Then came the war years where a vital RAAF base was located near the town. With the arrival of the motor car, schools and businesses became more centralised.Today the sounds of racing cars create a backdrop to the noise of farm machinery. A new transport gallery features the stories, events and methods of transportation used by the people of the Mallala district.
