“Not to be missed !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2011

Great tour from excellent tour guide of two very different 19th century homes. Houses are furnished with items from the 19th century which have come from the Townsville area. A rare treat and not to be missed. Easy to reach by public transport.

“See a few historical buildings in one visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2010

The Heritage Centre is actually three buildings which have been transported to the site. Guided tours are offered and whilst we only visited twop of the buildings they afforded an opportunity to see early Townsville life through the eyes of a middle class family and a poorer mining family.

The buildings are very well maintained, with lovely gardens. theyt contain many interesting artifacts and the guides are a wealth of knowledge.

Finding the heritage centre can be difficult and I wouldn't say its a place you could walk to in the Townsville heat. Not a place to take young children. Don't forget to walk to the north of Castling Street and see St Mary's church
