On the Move
About the Event
On the Move, a new family friendly exhibition that explores transport in all its forms, opens in the Children’s Gallery at the Ipswich Art Gallery on 27 February 2021. Created by Sydney Living Museums in collaboration with illustrator James Gulliver Hancock, On the Move takes visitors on a journey around Australia, discovering fascinating facts about different modes of transport and vehicles along the way.
Designed specially for children and families, On the Move is a highly engaging exhibition that offers hands-on discovery of incredible journeys, unique inventions, amazing vehicles and intrepid explorers across the county.
Discover how transportation works in busy cities and how fuel choices you make can have a positive impact on the environment. See how transport modes have evolved over time – the trials, the failures and the successes. Develop your fantasy trip, fuel up at the servo, craft your dream machine and build a vehicle for the future from Lego® and test it on a futuristic city track.
Promising to be an audience favourite is the story of 9 year old Lennie Gwyther who rode his pony, Ginger Mick, 1000kms to witness the opening of Sydney Harbour Bridge. Lennie met with Prime Minister Joseph Lyons on his way through Canberra and was made part of the bridge opening ceremonies before riding home to rural Victoria.
So grab your ticket and journey into an interactive world of transport.
