Ilfracombe Machinery and Heritage Museum & Folk Museum
The Ilfracombe Machinery Mile is one of the best historical machinery displays to be found anywhere in Australia and includes earthmoving machinery, standing steam engines, steel-wheeled tractors, and trucks. It is a timeline of machinery which depicts the origins and development of transport and pastoral industries in Central Western Queensland. The outdoor machinery display connects the Machinery Museum to the Ilfracombe Folk Museum, which continues to provide a view into the past via its household objects, folk art, and memorabilia. The museum is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and also is located close to a barbeque area and tourist rest stop.
