Join us for a look at the development of our railways in this traveling exhibition, on for a limited time only.

During the 1950s, 60s and 70s Australia invested in many railway developments across Australia with many Torres Strait Islander, Australian South Sea Islander and Aboriginal people integral in working on the developments.

The exhibition explores the stories of those people involved in the building of the railways, their culture, the issues they faced due to separation from their homeland and their working environment.

I’ve Been Working on the Railway is a national touring exhibition from The Workshops Rail Museum in Queensland, that explores the contribution of these cultural groups to the development of rail across Australia through stories, objects, music, video and photographs.
