Brooweena Historical Village and Museum
The Brooweena Historical Village provides a fascinating glimpse of the past with its tranquil rural setting in the centre of the township of Brooweena, 47 kilometres north of Maryborough.
This area was first settled by Europeans in 1849 and the town developed with the arrival of the railway line in 1889. The local sawmill opened in 1924 and closed in November 2013. Sugar production is also a major industry.
In 1892 the first shop was built in the township, followed by the station master's cottage. In 1915 the Woocoo Shire Office was built and is now housed in the complex.
This charming historical village at Brooweena has an extensive array of memorabilia, equipment, musical instruments and aboriginal rock carvings, housed in a collection of 12 heritage buildings in a tranquil bush setting.
The complex includes blacksmith's shop, butcher shop, wash house, original 1915 Council Office and an authentic rustic barn with a collection of bullock and horse drawn vehicles.
There is an original settler's slab dwelling with detached kitchen, dairy shed, former C.W.A. rooms, an old railway goods shed, railway station and old carriage, along with a school and church display. There are also catering and picnic areas.
