The Volunteers are the most friendly and informative people I have met in 40 years of traveling. The Centre and Museum is the most fantastic and interesting place I have visited and it is all free.

Visits are free, which is unusual these days. There are some great displays here. We enjoyed seeing inside the old train too. Definitely worth spending a bit of time here.

This place is interesting and informative and would be great for the kids. I loved it and how it had been put together. The volunteers behind the counter love a chat and also work hard to help people with information as well as attempting to find time to interract with whomever is in the centre. A credit to the town... More

We happened to stop at the Mareeba Heritage Museum by chance. And spend a couple of hours there. Stuffed full of information and stuff! with a humorous style. It is free to go round and is manned by volunteers but please remember to put money in the donation box. The paper stuff doesn't make a sound when you put it... More

This place was a real find. We always enjoy quirky little hometown museums & this is a particularly fine example (& not so little) We thought we might spend half an hour & have an ice cream but there is so much more to see out the back that we had at least a couple of hours. There are great... More

Operational clothes dryers and telephone systems. Definitely worth a stop over and quite a lot of interesting stuff all for a donation. Probably the best attraction of the area (specially since I am not a coffee person).

We unexpectedly spent almost three hours here. So, have plenty of time up your sleeve. The museum is free, but there is an opportunity to donate as you see fit. The place is almost like a full scale replica of the good old days. There is so much to see and read about the tobacco industry that was so fundamental... More
