Description

Nebo area is the key link to the 1800s and early life in the Mackay Region (being the closest rural and gold mining historical town to Mackay). In the early 1980s, to celebrate the Shire’s Centenary in 1983, a group of locals began the process of gathering many relics of the past and putting them together in a museum collection originally situated in the old Nebo Police Station. Today’s relocated museum opened in 1998 and is run by volunteers of the local community. The museum is a tribute to the pioneers of the past and is well worth a visit. The diverse range of the collection can be viewed each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 9.00 a.m. and 3.00 p.m., or arrangements can be made with the Nebo office of Isaac Regional Council (next door) to visit at other times. The Mount Britton Collection of paintings, on display at the museum, tell a story about the way of life of the early pioneers. Similar pioneer stories have occurred throughout this great land, as it was settled and so these prints have a universal Australian appeal.
