Our Coca-Cola Memorabilia Collection was started over 45 years ago in Zimbabwe and has now expanded to over 6,000 items.
Wherever you sit you’re surrounded by Brian Dawes’ Coke obsession; everything from the conservative to the quaint to the quirky. Many items have a story - like the Coca- Cola sign that once advertised a Louis Armstrong Concert or the red plastic chairs for the café’s al fresco diners, snapped up from the Sydney 2000 Olympics. There’s a model-T open delivery truck; coca-cola transistors; a miniature vending machine; clocks; bottle and can collections; and a lot more besides.
The Cola Cafe Collection
Started over forty-five years ago in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) with miniature glass bottles of Cola-Cola in a yellow crate.
Frequent trips to South Africa and three years’ study in England saw the collection gradually grow.
In 1978 the collection rapidly expanded, with trading partners in all states.
Trips to Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Vietnam and Bali have all added to the collection.

From the lofty grandeur of the court room to the stark confines of the prison cells, the York Courthouse Complex tells the intriguing story of country policing from the days of the first convicts to the late twentieth century.
York was Western Australia’s first inland town (founded 1831) and in 1852 the first part of the courthouse complex, the cell block and police station, was built. As the town prospered and expanded, so did the complex. A courtroom was added in 1859, the police station was expanded, and a troopers’ cottage, stables and yard were built to the rear. With the influx of money from the goldfields, part of the complex was demolished and a new two-storey courthouse was built in 1895.
The cells continued to be used until 1981 when a new police station was built in the town. The court room was still in use after the National Trust acquired the property in 1983.
