Who are the Quandamooka people?
Why are there over 8500 people buried in unmarked graves in the Dunwich (Goompi) cemetery?
Was there ever a dead man on Deadman’s Beach?
What are some of the roads in Amity Point (Pulan) named after?
The North Stradbroke Island Historical Museum is a great place to find out the answers to these questions – and lots more - and to connect with the people and the history of the Island.
Stroll through the beautiful buildings and experience Stradbroke (Minjerribah) history through the eyes of the people who have lived here.
There are a range of permanent displays about the Quandamooka people, convict history, shipwrecks and maritime history, the story of sandmining on the Island, as well as lots of photos of the old fishing shacks, boats and buses that helped kick off the tourism industry on Straddie.
There is also a room dedicated to sharing the story of the Dunwich Benevolent Asylum, and we have a range of photographs and documents to assist family historians.
Make sure you include a visit to the Museum when you’re planning your North Stradbroke Island holiday.
The Museum won the inaugural John Oxley Community Heritage Award for our Online Heritage Trail, an illustrated virtual tour through time around the island. Check it out here.
