Exciting things are happening following a grant to construct a special purpose building to house one of the Museum's  star attractions - 'Water Baby'.

The steam launch 'Water Baby' was built on Yandilla Station in 1877,  retrieved by the historical society in 1988 and the hull was restored as a Bicentennial Project. 'Water Baby' which was used to ship produce along the Condamine River was instrumental in relocating many people and stock during floods. To describe it as a 'baby' is rather deceptive as the launch is nearly 10-m long and 2-m high.
