Heritage House Yarraman
Information: Heritage House is a museum housed in the old Sacred Heart Convent, built in 1945, to cater for possible evacuees from Townsville and Cairns in the event of a Japanese invasion. After the war, the Sisters of Mercy took the convent overs as a boarding convent for boys, which operated until 1966. It then functioned as a retreat for nuns for some period and was then handed over to the aboriginal wing of the Catholic Church. The building fell into disrepair until it was sold in 1996 to the Yarraman and District Histocial Society. Today the museum houses a number of displays related to the history of Yarraman and the surrounding area, including the sawmill industry, electric power and street lighting, military memorabilia, the old Yarraman Railway Station, an early pioneers slab hut, Keid's Cottage, Arthur Brown's Butcher Shop. The Visitor Information Centre is located in Heritage House. Open daily, 9 am - 3 pm.
