Toowoomba never floods, it’s on top of a mountain range’. These words were repeated across the Nation in January 2010. Yet Toowoomba like much of Queensland did flood, tragically. Cobb+Co Museum opened its Toowoomba Never Floods exhibition in 2012 to acknowledge the enormous rescue and recovery effort by the local community in response to the floods of 2010-2011.
This digital presentation and Curator talk presented by Jeff Powell, Curator will focus on the impact of the flood on Cobb+Co Museum, historical images of floods in the region from the 1800s to 2011, video footage of the 2011 flood, objects from the exhibition and the importance of the development of the exhibition in helping to heal the community.
