Cobb & Co Coach Resources

Cobb & Co Coach Resources

Australian history throughout colonial and Victorian times is full of colour. It takes in an era of goldrushes, bushrangers and pastoral expansion, as well as the growth of the pioneering spirit and its place in Australian legend. Cobb & Co became famous during the late 1800s for its horse and coach transport network across New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, providing gold escorts, mail services, passenger and freight lines to the towns and settlements scattered over the land.
