Visit Queensland’s first established pioneer village - Laidley Pioneer Village and Museum, which was first opened in 1972. It has an extensive collection of old buildings, displays, collectables and machinery to give visitors a glimpse of what life was like for the early pioneers.

Guests can visit a fully furnished 110-year-old school room, learn more about the timber and farming industries by browsing the many tools and saws that were once used by early settlers, get up close to a number of old engines and machines that date back to the 1890s, explore the military room that houses plenty of old uniforms, rifles, books, photographs and certificates, as well as visit the medical centre that showcases old medicine tins and utensils.

On open days and during special events, you can view the local blacksmith and woodworkers in action.

The Laidley Pioneer Village and Museum is also home to three resident ghosts: a little girl in the school room; a former blacksmith who died in Laidley; as well as the ghost of a former member. Ghost tours are often run at the village. Search Pariah Paranormal on Facebook for upcoming events.

Open seven days a week, the Village also plays host to schools and bus groups, as well as smaller groups and individuals.
