We popped in to ask some questions about the local area and were blown away by the display and stayed for over an hour looking around. This display would be of interest to all ages.

Volunteer staff are super friendly and have a wealth of knowledge about the history of Mareeba and surrounds, always willing to help and always a pleasure to see their smiling faces. The new coffee shop also adds to the attraction, the customer service is great and a nice atmosphere.

The Heritage Centre has always been a top spot & now the absence of Coffee has been addressed. A lovely open air, under cover area at the rear of the Heritage Centre now serves great coffee & light meals/snacks/slices etc. Well worth a visit by both locals & visitors alike.

We were on own travels through Atherton via wherever the wheel pointed (Ok my NAVMAN) and needed a break.

Seeing the classroom and old railway ambulance showed this. It... More
