The Hervey Bay Historical Museum, located in Zephyr Street, Scarness, next to the big fish, is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 1.00 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. It can be open any time for groups, buses, and schools.
Allow yourself at least two hours to fully enjoy the experience. On Sundays, from 1 pm till 3 pm, the blacksmith and woodturner demonstrate their skills. You can see miniature horseshoes and tiny wooden goblets created before your eyes.
You can also take part in Corn Shelling and Rope making demonstrations and make your own free souvenir piece of rope.
The Museum gives a fascinating glimpse into Hervey Bay’s past. Thousands of household items and implements used in business, in the homes and on the farms in the 1800s are found him with clothes worn in that period, the wagons the pioneers drove and the books they read.
Hervey Bay Historical Village Museum has items collected locally and associated with the history of the Hervey and Wide Bay area. The collection includes implements and instruments used by the Bromiley family at Dundowran who were involved in sawmilling and growing coffee.
A slab cottage which was built around 1900 is on the premises and is furnished with authentic furnishings of this era. Also located is a fully equipped blacksmith shop with a working forge.
The non-denominational church on the premises is a popular venue for weddings, with the old buildings and slip rail fences ideal backgrounds for photographs.
The church was built in 1910 in Main Street for the Methodist residents, but after being donated to the historical society in 1987, it was restored and rededicated.
Admission is $10.00 for adults and $3.00 for Children. Pre school children free. For information ring Doug on (07)-4194 6464 or Margaret on (07)-4124 4791
