We Make Heritage FunMAREEBA HERITAGE CENTRE

Every day at the Museum we provide visitors with a guaranteed journey of discovery, where you can experience the true character of our region. With interactive, engaging and fun displays, there is no better way to learn about Mareeba’s fascinating history than to explore our Museum. 25 years of collections, 6,000 items, 47 exhibits all to be experienced and explored at our very special Museum. We usually complement our collections and exhibits with a series of shows, talks and presentations. However, given the current conditions and in the interest of our customers and staff, these events are temporarily unavailable. We’ll be back in 2022 with details to be made available on this site.

In the meantime, we invite you to visit us at our open air Museum and take a closer look at the story of Mareeba, a lively place representing the growth of an energetic and wild country town in Australia, Far North Queensland.

Big Things Are Planned For 2022SHOWS, TALKS & EVENTS

While COVID interrupted our plans in 2020, we’re coming back bigger and better with some old favourites and some new shows, talks, events and exhibitions. Highlights will include the return of ‘Come With Mary After Dark Tours’, which provides intimate, guided tours of our exhibitions with Mary, our Museum Curator. Also returning soon is the ‘Museum Highlights Tour’ which is a guided tour of our amazing Museum, bringing the history of our area to life. There are new activities planned, including the soon to be released ‘Discover It Yourself’ range of school age children’s activities, which will be available for purchase. These include the ‘I-Spy Museum Activity’ and ‘Trivia Museum Activity’.

Of course you’re always welcome to explore on your own and we encourage you to take your time and take a closer look. On each visit you might hear about or see something you’ve never noticed before, or simply forgotten. Seeing is remembering but touching creates a lasting impression. That’s why we have touchable exhibits where, under supervision, you can touch, feel and play with items from yesteryear. Our scheduled shows, talks and touchable exhibits invite visitors, young and old, to engage physically with the exhibits, props and activities.

Promotions and events coming up in 2022 include, but are not limited to: Teachers Open House (February), Mareeba Quizzards Mega Trivia Night (May), Car Boot & Suitcase Jumble (July), Adults Only social event (July), ReWIND A Festival of Heritage (September).  More details regarding these will be posted here in due course.
