Mount Tamborine  Museum Collection

 

STEP back in time when you enter the Tamborine Mountain Heritage Centre.

 It is run by the Mountain’s Historical Society and features a small historic village, depicting life on the mountain during the late 1800s and early 1900s.

 There is a general store, complete with a barber’s chair and a haberdashery. Next door is the blacksmith’s shop which adjoins the original Jenyn’s family dairy, one of the earliest on the mountain. A slab cottage has been rebuilt on the site and features original furniture from the era.

 One of the first churches to be erected on the mountain has also been moved in and restored within the centre’s grounds. It contains dioramas of the mountain’s history as well as extensive displays of fashions from the early 1900s.

 A large working model of the Curtis Water Wheel reveals to visitors how the early sawmills were powered..
