Description

No waiting at this hospital! Part of the Museum comprises the original Wondai Hospital operating theatre, built in 1929. The Museum is also home to the town's Manual Telephone Exchange and a 1924 Dennis fire engine, used to help fight the "Great Fire" at the Kingaroy peanut silos in 1951. The "Eric Radunz-Vince Miller Slab Barn", complete with shingle roof, and a restored Cream Shed full of memorabilia relating to the dairy industry are also sited within the grounds. The "Vince Miller Collection", comprising over 300 tools and artifacts, is another drawcard.
