Mulgrave Settlers Museum Information
Mulgrave Settlers Museum, next to the sugar mill in Gordonvale, was purpose-built to house objects used by settlers in the area then called Nelson in the late 1800s.
The aboriginal, miners' and timber cutters' displays are realistically set against a 40 metre rainforest backdrop. There's a fully equipped blacksmith's workshop. Furniture and homemakers' aides in the pioneer woman's domain demonstrate the ingenuity and craftsmanship of the era, plus a few luxuries.
Boats and packhorses brought supplies through Packers Camp to the goldfields, and artefacts hold many memories. Documents recording lives of early settlers are a useful resource for geneology research.
School children can engage with their local history, see some of the tools their grandparents actually used and learn of the impact on the community of the 503rd Parachute Regiment based there during World War Two. A hand-crafted Chinese Joss is in safe keeping along with memorabilia from prominent local citizens.
