Experience Minjerribah from a different perspective. Why are there over 8500 unmarked graves in the Goompi/Dunwich Cemetery? Was there ever a dead man on Deadman's Beach? The North Stradbroke Island Museum on Minjerribah is a great place to find the answers to these questions and lots more and to connect with people and the history of the island.

Experience Minjerribah's history through the stories of the people who have lived here.

There are a range of permanent displays about the Quandamooka people, British invasion, convict history, shipwrecks and maritime history, the story of sand mining on the Island, as well as lots of photos of the old fishing shacks, boats and buses that helped kick off the tourism industry on Straddie.
There is also a room dedicated to sharing the story of the Dunwich Benevolent Asylum, and they have a range of photographs and documents to assist family historians.

Everyone can enjoy the award-winning family-friendly museum and are welcome to browse through the Museum shop for local publications, gifts or a jar of the famous cumquat marmalade.

Well behaved dogs welcome.
