The Beaudesert Museum building has three areas:

  1. The main area has a collection of photographs and written documents along with a comprehensive family history archive and several display cases of collectibles. A library of books, covering a broad spectrum of topics, some by local authors both contemporary and historical.
  2. The rear area contains a display of dioramas of local interest along with some of our aforementioned animal drawn vehicles and our prize – 
    • the Dennis Fire Engine (still in working order)
    • also a large display of hand tools, many being of local invention and construction showing the ingenuity of our earlysettlers who had to make it or wait years for delivery.
  3. The third area currently houses industrial equipment - a metal press guillotine, the Gutenberg machinery and a working astrological telescope, made by the founder of Lithgow Iron Works who later established Port Kembla Iron Works.
