A program of craft, painting and other fun activities is available at the museum, especially during the school holidays. Check the website for special events while you’re planning your trip.

Contemporary exhibitions and historical displays

Bribie Island Seaside Museum has a lot for adults too. From temporary exhibitions that change every few months to insightful documentaries showing in the micro cinema, there are plenty of ways to brush up on the history of modern seaside tourism and more. The work of one of the great Australian artists, Ian Fairweather, is featured at the museum.

Explore the intricate western and Asian influences in his paintings as you browse the collection. You can also learn the history of explorer Matthew Flinders and local man Bongaree who had an altercation over Flinders’ hat. This scuffle apparently led to the naming of nearby Skirmish Point.

Bribie Island is a beautiful township separated from the mainland by Pumicestone Passage. This unique contemporary museum has a beautiful outlook of the water and is surrounded by picturesque shorelines perfect for a swim or picnic as part of your day out.
