Operating out of 2 (soon to be 3) buildings on several levels , with a replica fire station including a dormitory and garage to house an appliance.

Embracing all services the museum has amassed an impressive collection over the years, displays include rural, industrial and military with the main aim being the Queensland fire services history.

The museum complex is open every Sunday to the public from 8am to 12 noon and by appointment at other times, we can cater for birthday parties and provide vehicles for your wedding photos on the grounds surrounded in lovely bush setting with historic buildings.

Entry to the museum is by gold coin donation which will help us achieve ours goals with restoring and maintaining a historically significant collection of fire appliances and related equipment.

The museum is also seeking new members to assist with various tasks, no experience is necessary we accept new members from all walks of life, all we ask is that you have a passion for retaining and maintaining historically significant items.
