Facilties


The heritage listed Commissariat Store, situated between William Street and  the  river on Queens Wharf Road, was hand built and completed by convicts in 1829, using Brisbane Tuff from the Kangaroo Point cliffs.

The Museum  displays the Queensland History and Convict  collection of  Royal Historical Society of Queensland. The Store and the Windmill on Wickham Tce, are the only buildings remaining from the Moreton Bay Penal Settlement.

Also managed by the RHSQ, is the Welsby Library (on the top floor of the Museum). The Library is open to the public for research every Thursday.   

Guides are included  free with the entry price and are delighted to share their knowledge with all visitors, including students/teachers  from  schools studying the Moreton Bay Penal Settlement and  Separation and Immigration of Queensland from 1824 onwards.
