A visit to the Sunshine Coast has to include Landsborough Museum

We have a vast collection for you to help maintain



Landsborough and District Historical Society


The Museum provides public access to a range of research materials including access to our collection databases, more than 2,000 digital images, maps dating back as far as 1859, as well as documents, books and papers relating to the area from Gympie to Brisbane.  The collection includes Government Gazettes from 1862-1994


Research is conducted in the Stan Tutt Reading Room which was the old Board Room of the Council Chambers

A hand crafted Reading Room sign is located on the wall of the room

It was made by local craftsperson, Gary Clarke, from recycled cedar and beech

Research can be undertaken in the Reading Room by purchasing a ticket for $25. This provides the researcher with entry to the museum for one year.
