Queanbeyan Printing Museum

The Queanbeyan Printing Museum features working printing presses and memorabilia from the first newspaper established in Queanbeyan.

Take a nostalgic journey into Queanbeyan’s past from the first local newspaper ‘The Golden Age’ printed in 1860 through to the mid-1970s when letterpress printing at the ‘Queanbeyan Age’ was superseded by electronics and computerised typesetting.

Features 12 main sections from hand-set type, through hot-metal production, including a model 14 Lintotype, to a variety of printing presses such as a Wharfedale hand-fed press, various platens, proof presses and a Meihle automatic commercial printing press. All machines have been restored to full operational mode.
