Open 7 days per week 10am-3pm, The Pioneer Museum has an outstanding collection of original items used by the Northcliffe Group Settlers more than 80 years ago, illustrating their domestic life and work on the dairy farms, on which the district of Northcliffe was founded.

The original Group 121 bush school, teacher’s cottage and hospital memorabilia bring back countless memories, and the large collection of family photographs is of special interest to those researching their family’s life in the 1920s.

The George Gardner exhibition in the Museum’s mill cottage displays aboriginal tools used within the past 8000 years, fossils 3000 million years old and 1200 rocks and minerals from around Australia and overseas. The collection also includes the George Gardner photographic record of all native wildflowers growing in the Northcliffe region.

The Robey Engine, brought to Northcliffe in 1924 to help build the timber Group Houses, is also on display.

The Pioneer Museum and Machinery Shed, the electric barbecue and gazebo dedicated to the Northcliffe Pioneer Women are set in the spacious picnic grounds of Jubilee Park. They nestle beside the jarrah and karri Forest Park where several of the original tracks that hauled cut timber to the Northcliffe mill fifty years ago are today’s bushwalking trails, especially beautiful in the wildflower season.

As well as our main website, the Pioneer Museum has a special website to organise and promote the celebration of Northcliffe's Centenary: 1924-2024. We are now seeking stories for our centenary book. While you are on our site check out the 100 year timeline of Northcliffe in the Resources menu.
