Beenleigh Historical Village and Museum encourages school groups to visit by providing hands on activities for children including old-fashioned washing, blacksmithing, bush-painting, caring for farm animals and lessons in the late 1800s school.
Beenleigh Historical Village and Museum caters for weddings in the historic St. George’s church, and runs other events throughout the year. These include an annual Celtic Day and Oktoberfest. The entry point is the Beenleigh Visitor Information Centre, an accredited visitor information centre offering a one-stop shop for travel information.
The Village will be closed on Saturdays to the general public as they host private functions using the space. Weekend guests can come on Sundays and enjoy breakfast or lunch at the Jimbelung Cafe, the fantastic artworks at Gallery In The Corridor and a free self-guided tour of our famous old buildings and memorabilia.
