If you're into local history and traditional craftsmanship then put a visit to Ipswich's historic Cooneana Homestead on your itinerary. Home to the Ipswich Historical Society and Spinners and Weavers, Cooneana Heritage Centre houses historical photographs, memorabilia, artefacts and mining displays that showcase the rich and diverse history of Ipswich - Queensland's oldest provincial city.

Explore Jim Donald House, a fine example of a Workers Cottage, which has been faithfully restored and furnished to reflect the period - 1890s to early 1900s - when this architectural style was popular. In the classroom area of the museum. children can experience an olden time classroom complete with "engraved" wooden desks and slate boards - a great experience for school groups. Ipswich's important mining history is also represented with indoor and outdoor exhibits and the traditional crafts of spinning and weaving can be seen on Thursdays.

Cooneana Heritage Centre is open Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and the second and third Sundays of each month (March to November) from 10am to 2pm.
