Heritage Centre Townsville
The Townsville Heritage Centre presents a special insight into the lives of workers, wealthier businessmen and professionals in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Visit two 1880s buildings that represent two quite different strata of society from that time. Learn more about the histories of the buildings and the fascinating stories of the people who lived in them. All had associations with the industries that shaped the north—with famous sugar plantations, great gold mines, pioneering pastoral properties, the horse trade to India, and even the searches for the passenger ship the SS Yongala that disappeared in 1911.
Sunday 21 May, 11am to 4pm.
The Townsville Heritage Centre will be open as a part of the Townsville Heritage Day.
A free shuttle bus will transport visitors from the Townsville Heritage Centre to West End Cemetery throughout the day.
Guides will be on duty but will not be giving personalised tours. Ede’s Events will hold a display, Fibres and Fabrics with stall selling their hand-made goods, Fourth Sunday Folk Group which will be playing, a collectables stall, and other attractions available on the day.
National Trust Townsville Branch will be conducting a fund-raising raffle for which prizes will be tickets to Warrina Cinema.
We will be open from 11am to 4pm on this day.
