Description

Sarina is situated 36 kilometres south of Mackay and 300 kilometres north of Rockhampton on the Bruce Highway. The Historical Centre is part of the 'Field of Dreams' complex on the southern outskirts of the township.

The Historical Centre is the former St Anne's Catholic Convent building. The building was built in 1923 as a Presbytery for the Catholic Priest in Sarina but when the first group of Sister's of Mercy were appointed to the town in 1925 the building became the Convent. A number of additions have been made to the original building so that they could take in boarders.

On 19 January 2001 it was relocated to its present site at the 'Field of Dreams' and renovated to become the Historical Centre.

Visitors can see the Historical Centre and view some important facts about this district for example gold mining, sugar, animal, coal, and rail industries to checking out about the lost Phoenicians as well as numerous other displays.

If required, morning tea can be provided for group bookings or bring a picnic and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. An electric barbecue is provided for your convenience.
