Stay an Extra Day...
Peterborough was a hero of the 20th century – a hissing, steaming hub of mighty locomotives sitting at the crossroads of a growing nation.
Today, the spring skies are china blue, the kids no longer have to wipe the clothes-lines clean of soot and the only whistles are from birds among the wildflowers. But Peterborough is still the geographic heart of Australia and visitors still arrive from four corners – although they're usually hauling caravans rather than freight!
You'll be surprised by the beauty of the district, the plains of rolled gold running to ancient ranges. And you'll love the wide Main Street with its grand architecture, four pubs and shouts of 'G'day!' from the locals.
Matching a passion for the past with a zest for today, the people of Peterborough welcome you with one of the nation's finest heritage experiences, Steamtown, as well as historic collections, artistic creativity, superb locally-sourced food, love of country and fondness for a good yarn.
So do yourself a favour and do us the honour.
Stay an extra day!
