Pine Rivers Heritage Museum


Set amongst the graceful landscape of Old Petrie Town, Pine Rivers Heritage Museum explores the district's historic character. Learn about early timber-getters and industries, experience an 1890s school classroom and glimpse life before electricity in an original farm workers cottage.

The museum features:

  • a theatrette that animates the history of the region in film and some surprising objects
  • one of the earliest kit homes produced by James Campbell and Sons in the 1890s
  • artefacts uncovered at Camp Strathpine, a Second World War military facility
  • the Skyring Clock Collection of fifty clocks skilfully hand-built by one man
  • stories of early European settlement told by descendants of pioneering families
  • films about Normanby Rum, the Australian Paper Mill and other early industries
  • a diverse program of events and workshops for adults and children.
