Redcliffe Museum

75 Anzac Avenue, Redcliffe QLD, Australia

The Museum and its Collections offer an intriguing insight into a unique region; its European history since 1799; its heritage as Queensland’s first European Settlement in 1824-25; its much older indigenous culture; its rich maritime history; and the pleasures and surprises of bay side life.

Discover the history of the Peninsula

Located in the stunning parkland of Corscadden Park by Humbong Creek, Redcliffe Museum is in the old Sacred Heart Memorial Church site, offering a truly unique structure to learn about the past of Redcliffe and its surrounds.

Through triumph and tragedy, the peninsula has etched its story in the history books and evolved to become the vibrant province it is today. The museum is a fabulous place to explore the rich history and culture through interaction, exhibition and exciting displays.
