The Museum and its Collections offer an intriguing insight into a unique region; its European history since 1799; its heritage as Queensland’s first European Settlement in 1824-25; its much older indigenous culture; its rich maritime history; and the pleasures and surprises of bay side life.
Located in the stunning parkland of Corscadden Park by Humbong Creek, Redcliffe Museum is in the old Sacred Heart Memorial Church site, offering a truly unique structure to learn about the past of Redcliffe and its surrounds.
Through triumph and tragedy, the peninsula has etched its story in the history books and evolved to become the vibrant province it is today. The museum is a fabulous place to explore the rich history and culture through interaction, exhibition and exciting displays.
As well as many permanent displays celebrating Redcliffe’s past, there is a temporary exhibition gallery. A dedicated space for exhibitions set up with the help of local historical groups and touring exhibitions from state and national museums.
The Museum Shop stocks a range of historical books, DVDs, souvenirs and giftware. A great way to continue the learning long after your visit. Find a special gift for friends, family or even to treat yourself!
Redcliffe Historical Society has a number of merchandising lines available at the Museum. All profits from these sales go the Redcliffe Historical Society, a hard working team dedicated to educating locals and visitors on the history of this wonderful part of the world.
