Redcliffe Museum

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.

Discover the history of the Peninsula

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.

Redcliffe Museum features

  • films about the early days of the Redcliffe peninsula
  • a celebration of holidays by the seaside
  • treasured photographs showing Redcliffe years ago and now
  • Scenes of life, where modern technology brings historical objects to life
  • memory boxes to rummage through and uncover items and stories from the past
  • the Imaginarium - a fun, intergenerational space to play

Temporary Exhibition Gallery

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.
