We see Cobb and Co Carriages promoting a tourist attraction in City of Greater Bendigo and educating overseas tourist, interstate visitors and children how this country was built by horse power. We see this as an important part of our Australia’s history and should not be forgotten. Also by doing this we get to sponsor and support the local community.
Cobb and Co Carriages are committed to caring for their horses and have strict procedures for ensuring horses are fit, healthy and happy.
Cobb and Co. Carriages Victoria has a very distinct and personal relationship with our Australian history. The founder Ben Hall was the great grandson of the infamous Bushranger Ben Hall. This takes you back to the yesteryear name "Cobb and Co" and how it is synonymous with quality coach transport in Australia.
The original "Cobb and Co. Coaches" venture is a highly regarded Australian icon, and the romance of coach travel is still used today to promote tourism in Australia - long after the last coach finished its route.
