Pine Rivers Heritage Museum

Whiteside, Moreton Bay Area

The Pine Rivers Heritage Museum is set amongst the graceful landscape of Old Petrie Town, just to the north of Brisbane. Staff encourage visitors to explore the historic character of the Pine Rivers district through their permanent and ever-changing special displays.

The Museum is fully air-conditioned and there is always something new to see as they seek to build one of the best regional museums in Queensland. An animated theatrette provides an entertaining overview of the development of Pine Rivers.

Other displays include the Old Schoolroom, Yebri House, and supplying the Building Trade, while the stories of our explorers and early settlers provide colour and fascinating detail to their tale. One of their most significant displays is the Skyring Clocks, a collection of unique handmade 'skeleton' clocks which show their inside workings. Several times a year the Pine Rivers Heritage Museum creates or hosts new temporary exhibitions on a variety of themes.

Ocean View

Ocean View, Moreton Bay Area
For a relaxing day in the country or a romantic weekend for two, it's hard to beat the beautiful mountain-top community of Ocean View. Known as the gateway to Mount Mee in the Pine Rivers Shire, Ocean View is only an hour's drive from the centre of Brisbane, but a world away in mindset. It's a quiet, secluded community boasting stunning valley views and charming scenery. The drive to Ocean View winds past small farms and picturesque countryside. When the mercury rises in Brisbane, Ocean View is guaranteed to be at least four degrees cooler. The elevated altitude and strong sea breezes create a micro-climate which is perfect for fine wine production. See the proof of this for yourself with a visit to one of the local wineries. Enjoy a meal at a fine a la carte restaurant and sample a local drop at the cellar door. Just down the road you will find the village of Dayboro where you can browse the art galleries and art and craft shops. Accommodation at Ocean View includes bed-and-breakfasts and cottage holiday rentals.
