Wondai Heritage Museum

Wondai, South Burnett Area

Extending over 1,600 square metres, and divided into several differently themed environments, the Wondai Heritage Museum offers an uncluttered insight into the development, and the people, of the Wondai town and district spanning 120 years.

Military memorabilia and social development is the theme of the Formal Museum, which features, in particular. the bugle captured by local resident Jim Houston and played by him at the 1945 Japanese surrender at Morati.

The relocated 1910 Wondai Hospital operating theatre houses implements and history of a medical nature, and makes up the Hospital Complex.

On a larger scale, the Machinery Shed houses many meticulously restored items, from sulkies and threshers to the extensive “Vince Miller” collection of timber tools, and that grand old octogenarian the “Dennis Fire Engine”.

The 1930’s Slab Barn, complete with authentic shingle roof, is a fine example of pioneer construction, and now houses tools used by blacksmiths, cobblers, shearers and horsemen.

For so long the hub of Wondai, the 1920’S Oddfellows Hall houses a display of intricate lodge regalia, but principally featuring theatrically-styled settings depicting, schoolroom, laundry, kitchen, bedroom, cinematic and printing room in a sauntering walk back through time.

And did they mention it's fun! Yes it is!
