Queensland Ambulance Museums – Wynnum is the first of its kind to be established in Australia and is now one of several within Queensland. The museums demonstrate a tradition of close reciprocal support between the Ambulance Service and the community, through the presentation of the story of close community relations, community operations, clinical links, educational links and strong community support that feature in the history of Queensland Ambulance.

The exhibits show the progress of ambulance development, which has taken us from the simple first aid kits, and basic clinical practices of the nineteenth century to the defibrillators and complex clinical practices of the twenty-first century. The museum shows the transition from the hand held stretcher, through the hand-wheeled litter, jingles towing litters, to motorised ambulances.

The Museum has several historic ambulance vehicles in the collection, including a 1926 Arrol Johnson (Scottish) ambulance.
