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.
