Hervey Bay Museum is a wonderful collection of buildings and other exhibits that tell the story of the first settlers in the area, and how they lived. I needed every minute of the 3.5 hours I spent there to explore it.
It has a great crew of volunteers that are happy to help and guide you around the lovely grounds. I loved the old shops, the old railway station and Dundrowan School. It has a lovely little church that is still used for services, weddings, etc.
You should try to visit on a Sunday when the volunteers use machines over 100 years old to make ropes, shell corn and do wood turning. There is also a blacksmith!
