Full steam ahead for tourism-friendly Transport Museum

The Tasmanian Transport Museum recently hosted more than 60 local tourism operators for an engaging event facilitated by Destination Southern Tasmania (DST).

Multiple speakers gave presentations on upcoming events including the Crave Harvest Festival and the Tasmanian Autumn Festival.

“We are so grateful to the hospitality of the Tasmanian Transport Museum for hosting us and all the great leading tourism experts in attendance,” DST CEO Alex Heroys said.

President Jeff Bronstein addressed the crowd and highlighted some of the great restorative work conducted by the museum and its volunteers.

“We are honoured to have welcomed all of these local tourism leaders to our Museum. I would like to thank Alex and his team for organising this event,” Mr Bronstein said.

“I would also like to thank our team of volunteers and Aurora Disability Services for their catering services.”

After proceedings, guests were invited to join a 15-minute train ride on the museum’s vintage 1938 diesel rail car on the historic Glenorchy railway.

The Tasmanian Transport Museum is open for hosting services for all types of events, with all proceeds going towards the care and maintenance of the organisation and its fleet of historical machinery.
