Australian Workers Heritage Centre

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Discover at your own pace the Australian Workers Heritage Centre – a place of reflection, within this museum styled complex, visitors can journey through exhibition space which celebrates the extraordinary legacy of working Australians telling a vitally important part of our nation’s history through its working life via interactive displays, film, photographs, artefacts and recreated historical work settings.

Sited in the grounds of the former Barcaldine State School, many of the original structures have been re-invented into exhibition space. Historical work places of yesteryear, including a one teacher school, police watch house and railway station, have been relocated to the Centre from throughout Queensland.

Home of the “Young-Un’ an enduring legacy – this offspring is the only direct descendant of the Heritage listed ‘Tree of Knowledge’ – symbolic of the Shearers Strike of 1891.

Set in over two hectares, the Workers Heritage Centre has been designed with the weary traveller in mind. Beautifully landscaped gardens and shady trees surround a sparkling bore fed billabong creating a cool outback oasis, with the convenience of picnic, barbecue and playground facilities.
