Australia Day at Samford Museum

26 January @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Australia Day at Samford Museum is something to be remembered for a long time. The day is very busy with lots of entertainment for young and old alike.

As this is a day about Australia, its past and its future, the Museum endeavours to incorporate things about our past that have made this, our wonderful country, so unique in its attitude to life and living, as well as those things from the past of our indigenous inhabitants from whom we are still learning.

The early pioneering days are reflected in the displays that are opened for the public and all are specifically there because they showcase a particular facet of our past.
