Kurwongbah: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Pine Rivers Heritage Museum


The Pine Rivers Heritage Museum is set amongst the graceful landscape of Old Petrie Town, just to the north of Brisbane. Staff encourage visitors to explore the historic character of the Pine Rivers district through their permanent and ever-changing special displays.

The Museum is fully air-conditioned and there is always something new to see as they seek to build one of the best regional museums in Queensland. An animated theatrette provides an entertaining overview of the development of Pine Rivers.

Other displays include the Old Schoolroom, Yebri House, and supplying the Building Trade, while the stories of our explorers and early settlers provide colour and fascinating detail to their tale. One of their most significant displays is the Skyring Clocks, a collection of unique handmade 'skeleton' clocks which show their inside workings. Several times a year the Pine Rivers Heritage Museum creates or hosts new temporary exhibitions on a variety of themes.

Strathpine Memorial Honour Board


Rolls of honour like the Strathpine Honour Board give a ready insight into a locality's proud involvement in WWI.

The honour board, designed by leading Brisbane metal worker Ernest Gunderson in 1921, lists in alphabetical order 76 names of local men who served in WWI. Some lettering is now missing, in its original state it clearly recorded whether a person was killed in action, wounded, died of illness or returned home.

The honour board, commissioned by the Strathpine Patriotic League, is made of bronze on a marble background with timber edging. It features cavalrymen with the Queensland state emblem and soldiers; two enamelled flags- the Union Jack and Australian flag; the AIF emblem; a cannon and a replica of Britannia, with the words 'For king and country'.

Gunderson's honour boards are unique to Queensland. Few remain as intact as this example, now found in the old foyer of the Pine Rivers RSL, now within the grounds of North Leagues and Services Club.

Memorials to the district's servicemen in later conflicts are located nearby. The First World War Memorial Gates facing Anzac Avenue were relocated from the Lawnton showgrounds in 1985, and lead to a memorial garden containing two trophy guns.

Osprey House Environment Centre


Osprey House Environment Centre is nestled on the banks of the Pine River amidst the branching arms of the mangroves. It melds as a part of this sensitive wetland area with its natural timber design, sweeping verandas and meandering boardwalks inviting everyone to explore almost secret locations and learn about the local fauna and flora.

Cast your eyes across the river and wetlands from the viewing platforms and enjoy the ambience of the natural environment. So much wildlife inhabits this area that the you are spoiled for choice, whether it is birds on high, sleepy koalas in the gum trees, crabs in the mudflats or a dolphin playing in the river channel, each day offers unique surprises.

The centre includes a theatre, an interpretive centre with information about our natural environment and how we can all make a difference, 400 metres of boardwalks and a barbecue and picnic area.

Osprey House is situated close to where Ospreys regularly roost. These fish eating hawks may be seen at almost any time in daylight hours, soaring over the river, diving into the water to catch fish, or carrying fish back to their nest and feeding site atop a 21 metre raptor pole.
