Explore. Learn. Play.MAREEBA HERITAGE MUSEUM

Make sure you allow plenty of time to explore Mareeba Heritage Museum. Our extensive and diverse array of displays provide a window into the history of Mareeba, a lively place representing the growth of an energetic and wild, Australian country town. Our exhibits have been nationally recognised and include historical artefacts and photographs, building re-creations, machinery and much more. Exploring the outside grounds you’ll find farming equipment, relics from our early fire service, a saddle shop, blacksmith shop, stockyards, goat carts and more. The Mareeba town streetscape makes for a great photo opportunity.

Our interior exhibits have an emphasis on early living, multiculturalism and the natural environment. There’s areas dedicated to Mareeba’s Indigenous, early explorers and settlers, mining, the rainforest, timber industry and World War II. You can download a copy of our Visitor Map here and we look forward to seeing you at the Museum. Entry is free, but donations are kindly appreciated. Guided tours and school excursions are available.

Big Things Are Planned For 2022SHOWS, TALKS & EVENTS

We’re excited for the year ahead in 2022, bringing back some old favourites and some new shows, talks, events and exhibitions. Highlights 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.
