Wish you were here: tokens of travel

Sending postcards and buying a souvenir or two were once part and parcel of a trip away, before the days of personal cameras and instant selfies. Ceramic dishes, trinkets, cups and saucers, toothpick holders, spoons, and tea towels were some of the most popular take-home items and were produced in their thousands.

Charming examples of all these souvenirs are among Tweed Regional Museum’s latest exhibition, Wish you were here: tokens of travel, which features souvenirs of the Tweed from the early 1900s through to the present.
Wish you were here includes a strong focus on holidays at the beach, which was a big reason for holidaying in the Tweed and around the border. Many postcards and other items show beach scenes, camping, guesthouses and holiday activities.

The exhibition also includes over 25 items of souvenir ware on loan from the Queensland Museum, and iPads where visitors can explore over a hundred postcards and tourist guides dating back to the 1920s.
