A major attraction in the Landsborough Historical Museum is the rare collection featuring the Dead Man’s Pennies, as well as an old printing press. There are thousands of memorabilia, artefacts, photographs, and documents that tell the important story of both indigenous and non-indigenous people who have contributed to the growth of Caloundra as we know it today.
The building itself has a story to tell; it was once the Landsborough Shire Council Chambers office which was designed back in 1924. The museum is open from Wednesdays to Fridays, and again on Sundays, from 9am to 3pm. Groups are welcome, but be sure to book in advance. Entrance fees are applicable depending on the visitors’ age and group size.
The museum is also a valuable source of research; the public can use the research materials such as digital images, databases, and maps that go as far back as 1859. The Stan Tutt Reading Room is where research is regularly conducted; the room also happens once to be the Board Room of the Council Chambers.
The Landsborough Historical Museum should be part of any visit to Landsborough. Well-worth the trip, especially for history and culture buffs!
