The Museum is housed in the original Warooka Police Station.
The first Trooper, J.P.Dowling, with his dray-load of supplies, arrived in February 1879. The two front rooms were built in 1883, but the “movable cell” and rear four rooms had been built before that.
The station closed in 1924, and it was used as a private residence until 1980 when it was purchased by the Warooka Historical and Museum Society.
This is a group of volunteers and the building has been restored by voluntary labour. Most of the exhibits have been donated by the people of the district.
At the back of the building more displays are housed in sheds and the old gaol cell.
Items include old wares and machinery of yesteryear.
The aim of the Museum is to tell the continuing story of the District of Warooka.
We hope you enjoy your visit and learn a little about our district.
Entry cost is just $2 per adult and children 12 and over.
The Museum is situated at 6 Brentwood Road, Warooka
Open Fridays 11am – 3pm or by appointment.
