Tinonee Museum

A visit to Tinonee is not complete without a trip to the Tinonee Museum located in Manchester Street, where you will find the town’s original ‘lock-up’ on display.

In the years when the rivers were the roads, Tinonee was the heart of the Manning River where majestic sailing ships were an everyday sight as Tinonee buzzed with commerce and industry. Around 1860-70 Tinonee had five hotels, a post office, flour mill, sugar mills, sawmills, three churches, blacksmith shop, broom factory, bakery, newspaper, office, hospital, school, bacon factory, brick kiln, butchery, bank and of course, Captain Gollan’s shipyard. These were the base of a thriving community!

Open 10 am to 2:00 pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Open 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm on Saturday.

Great place to visit when in Tinonee, cheap and steeped in the towns history. Most knowledgeable and friendly helpful volunteers who work there.
