  • This is quite a small local museum with some interesting exhibits. I particularly liked the info on the very short-lived convict outstation at Dunwich and also on the leper colony at nearby Peel...

  • This was my first visit to this Museum and it was an amazing experience ☺️ If you haven’t tried the Museum Trail yet, you have to!! It was one of the most well thought out trails that’s not only education but also extremely interactive that immerses you into the history of the island. Can’t wait to be back!
  • Learned a lot about the history of Stradbroke. Great presentation of stories and artefacts
