Fun adventure for the entire family - TAVAS living early aviation display. The most unique aviation museum in Australia. The only museum in this country that concentrates solely on the first 30 years of powered flight - and houses the only collection of flying WWI type aircraft in Australia. Includes several aircraft that can't be seen anywhere else in the Southern Hemisphere.
TAVAS, what a fantastic place to visit. I had expected to spend, at most an hour here. Over 2 hours later my wife phoned me asking if I had actually forgotten her. "Ah no, just so much to see and take in here." Nathalie and Andrew were both so friendly and so willing to share their knowledge of this wonderful place. I will certainly be back, when we are in Noosa for Christmas.

Travel back in time to ancient and classical worlds inside the treasure house of 500,000 years of human history. View Abbey Church’s 13th century medieval stained glass collection, and historical jewelry and artefacts from Europe’s Renaissance period and industrial revolution.
Wow really surprised by the Abbey Museum, the reviews sounded good so risked a 1hr drive from Brisbane to check it out. Travel back in time from British Stone Age, to Medieval times complete with armor, and then some interesting historical pieces from Egypt and Asia. The displays & information provided was excellent ! Great for everyone & worth the trip.

Celebrate the evolution of Redcliffe Peninsula's character, identity and discover its significance in Australian history. Reminisce about the heyday of seaside holidays and marvel at the vision and hard work needed to make the peninsula what it is today. The museum features: - films about the early days of the Redcliffe peninsula - a celebration of holidays by the seaside - treasured photographs showing Redcliffe years ago and now - memory boxes to rummage through and uncover items and stories from the past - the Imaginarium - a fun, intergenerational space to play - a diverse programme of events, exhibitions and workshops for adults and children.
This light, bright museum with friendly, helpful staff is well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of the Redcliffe Peninsula. Well set out with enlightening explanations. I was very interested in the section explaining the Aboriginal history of the area.

Explore the intriguing and fascinating history of Bribie Island in a beautiful contemporary museum. The Seaside Museum enjoys scenic views across the glimmering waters of the Pumicestone Passage and Moreton Bay.
With a group of our social club members we truly enjoyed our visit to Bribie Island Seaside Museum. The docuumentaries were very well written - actually read heaps because of the great writing style. Well laid out, heaps of history (even a replica of Matthew Flinders Black Cat :-) the Seaside Museum showcases Bribie history in modern surroundings and lovely welcome by people who worked there. Thanks you
Right in the heart of Woodford & only one hour's drive from the Sunshine Coast & Brisbane is the Woodford Museum. The Museum is a exhibition hub for the history of Woodford's early settlers & explorers. The museum holds collected items and photographs covering the time from when the Archer Brothers first settled at Durundur in 1841 and is home of the Mick Draper collection of miniature buildings.
