The Centre has an extensive Aboriginal cultural display, a settler's hut showcasing historical memorabilia, turn-of-the-century telephone exchange, a printing press and a motor rail ambulance.

There are also displays on mining, forestry, tobacco, agriculture and the Wet Tropics. The wet tropics display features a cassowary (the flightless rainforest bird), other birdlife and rainforest vegetation.

We had a lovely time at the Queensland Day celebrations. My 6yr old said his favourite things were the aboriginal display, the rainforest display and the planetarium. 1yr old loved the bouncy castle. My husband said he enjoyed all of it especially the planetarium. I thought the atmosphere was great and I enjoyed listening to the volunteers telling us the history behind the museum pieces. Great night and a really great museum. Thank you.
