Welcome to the Proserpine Historical Museum, three-time winner of the Whitsunday Heritage and Cultural Tourism Award and a Queensland Tourism Judges Commendation. The museum has also been inducted into the Whitsunday Tourism Hall of Fame.


The Society aims to collect and preserve the history of the Whitsunday region and its associated communities. The museum houses an extensive collection of printed materials, photographs and artefacts relating to the history of the area, from its first inhabitants the Juru, Gia, Bira and Ngaro people, to the early European pioneers and the post war settlers. A small theatre screens a selection of DVDs on local topics and famous identities.


The Museum is managed and maintained entirely by volunteers.
