The Kyneton Museum is a fascinating place for the entire family to explore, with the current exhibition, Coast to Coaster on display until Sunday 26 June.
Remember the 70’s? Think Skyhooks, the Sunbury Music Festival, Sandman and… the beer coaster. Revisit an Aussie pub icon in this playful exhibition featuring pub coasters from all over Australia.
Traditionally associated with sporting events like the America’s Cup, cricket, football and motor racing, the iconic beer coaster was the business card of the 70’s. Part of this exhibition involves getting local business to dig back into the back of their drawers and find the beer coasters that they had printed in the 70’s and 80’s.
