The Mareeba Heritage Museum is a place of learning and discovery. We encourage students’ to investigate the yesteryear and their culture and heritage, with our hands-on approach to teaching and learning. School excursions and guided tours can be booked throughout the year, and are scheduled every Monday-Wednesday from 10am to 1pm. When you choose to bring your students here, our trained Museum guides will connect students with the past, inspiring them to value, conserve and make a difference for the future.
Our education programs are designed for all ages and are aligned to learning outcomes of the National Australian Curriculum’s Humanities and Social Sciences strand. We provide unique on-site sessions, Discover-it-Yourself programs and education materials suitable for all students. Your school excursion entry fee to the Museum opens the door to a range of fun, educational activities. We will help you develop a program tailored to your curriculum, area of study or student interests. Familiarize yourself with our features, by downloading a copy of the Mareeba Heritage Museum map.

At the Mareeba Heritage Museum students can follow the journey of the days of Aboriginal peoples, early settlement, past the gold and timber industries, and finally the advances in technology, health and transport. We provide a range of innovative, ‘hands-on’ learning experiences for students from prep to upper primary and a variety of opportunities for school groups. This includes, but is not limited to, students role-playing what school life was like back in the 1850s in Mareeba. They may like to come in costume and under supervision, be shown how to use tools from the past, such as old school slates, telephones, lawn mowers, water pumps and washing machines. Students can have fun and try out the ‘Bushman’s Smart Alec’ Test and we can even provide ideas for Discover-it-Yourself ideas.
Please note our education sessions can be tailored to suit the needs of students of all ages. Additional information is provided in our downloadable School Flyer and please note we can always tailor our school excursion tours to suit your requirements. Can’t find what you want?
