  2. Our displays showcase the past for present and future generations

We are proud of our extensive collections relating to the Sugar and Telecommunications industries …

An impressive assembly of railway locomotives and associated machinery from the Moreton Central Sugar Mill (1897-2003) is showcased.

From morse code to the local manual telephone operator and the first mobile phone, the various forms of communication used in Nambour for more than 100 years are on display here.
