Beenleigh Historical Village and Museum
Beenleigh Historical Village and Museum (BHV&M) takes you on a journey of years gone by. This collection of our heritage organised as a village is dedicated to preserving the cultural legacy of the old Beenleigh region for current and future generations.
A popular tourist destination for school students, families and seniors tours, the Beenleigh Historical Village features early Australia memorabilia, collections of items and even entire buildings which have been lovingly preserved and restored. They’re also a favourite location for car and bike clubs, and special functions such as weddings.
There are 20 heritage buildings filled with original items used by those who lived in the 1860s and onward. Their extensive collection has been either donated to the Village or were the original products/items belonging in the homes they have on site.
You can see the old St. George Anglican Church, The Beenleigh Council Chambers, Willkie’s General Store, the old Dodge fire engines, family homes, the Loganholme One Teacher School, the Post Office and much more.
