The permanent displays of the museum feature the Matthew Flinders 1799 expedition, Ian Fairweather’s life and art, and a massive collection of preserved fish from Moreton Bay from the 1900s.
The gallery itself is beautifully designed and well maintained. Lots of natural light flow within, and the design utilises polished hardwood and timber slats. It promises a fantastic day for the whole family to soak up culture and history with magnificent views.
The Bribie Island Seaside Museum also houses a shop selling a curated array of seaside novelty items, handmade jewellery, history books, toys and games for kids, fishing guides, décor, and much more. Opposite the museum is a small carpark, though street parking is also available nearby. A toilet is available onsite.
