Fraser Coast Museums

A love of history is not compulsory - just a keenness to get lost in time on an amazing journey into the pioneering past of the Fraser Coast.

Follow a trail around the many Fraser Coast museums and historical collections to get a sense of the struggles and ultimate triumphs of the region's early pioneers as they settled the wild Australian bush, established farming and industry and turned dusty makeshift settlements into thriving towns filled with stately buildings and grand homes.

Croydon Foundry

The Croydon Foundry Museum is a valuable piece of Maryborough's history that gives an insight into one of the city's major industries during last century.

The foundry was established by English immigrant William Stevenson in 1908 and operated in Maryborough until 1968. It produced the popular Croydon fuel stoves and boiler stands along with agricultural, mining and timber milling machinery and equipment for Queensland's sugar mills.

The complex also houses Bottlebrush Crafts whose members paint china, make bobbin lace, pottery, cloth dolls, scrapbook and spin and weave. Crafts are on sale.
