Museum of Tropical Queensland Tours

Since 2000, the Museum of Tropical Queensland—the only branch of the museum north of Brisbane—has been exploring the culture, traditions and heritage of this diverse area. Visitors can learn more about the history of the HMS Pandora—a famous ship that sank off the coast of Cape York in the late 1700s and examine recovered artifacts on display in museum halls. Another exhibit even teaches guests how to load and fire a replica of one of the ship’s cannons.

Monthly lectures and unique educational programs are just part of what makes a trip to the Museum of Tropical Queensland memorable. And the Enchanted Rainforest, which explores the diverse ecosystem—complete with rope bridge and slide—is a popular stops for visiting families. 

Practical Info

The museum is a 10-minute walk from Flinders Mall and accessible via the Sunbus 1A near Stokes Street. The museum is open daily from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. It is closed on Christmas Day and Good Friday. Entry is $15 for adults and $8.80 for children between the ages of three and 15.
