“The Hidden Treasure of Templin”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

We were in the vicinity of this venue only on days when it was not open to visitors; however a phone call to the number shown in the brochure resulted in us being granted a special opportunity to be there whilst some of the volunteers were on site. The hospitality of the volunteers who opened the complex up for us was warm and welcoming, and we were greeted as valuable visitors rather than a nuisance. We had a two hour window of opportunity and we made good use of the whole of that time, with personal guidance through some parts of the village - it was especially appreciated when it came to visiting the main home on site when we were given a 'tour' of the archival of clothing and its storage, as well as the school room which was of real interest to those in the party of five who were associated with education through their time teaching in schools. This is a 'not to miss' opportunity for those in the Scenic Rim area of Queensland.

“enjoyable visit if in the area”
Reviewed 21 January 2013

On the way home from camping we decided to stop into this historical village, 3 adults, 6 kids ($30). It is run by volunteers from the historical society, the ladies were very friendly and informative. The village is only open from 9.30 am every Sunday. We spent 1.5 hours going through all the site. It had plenty of nostalgia, interesting facts and artifacts. There is no particular funding to keep this site going so I think it is a good idea to visit just to fund (entry fee) the importance of keeping our history alive. If you have an elderly grandparent or relative I think they would love to see this attraction as it would remind them of their childhood. A worthwhile visit.

“Wow ! What a place !”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

We discovered this historic museum quite by surprise on our travels and we are so glad we did ! My husband and children do not share my love of historical sites and history whatsoever and yet they spent over 90 minutes at this site going through all of the buildings and viewing the collections - we were all absolutely fascinated and amazed.

It comprises 13 buildings. The school and church are in their original positions and the other 11 buildings have been moved to the site from the local district and lovingly restored.

It was amazing to view the small, single room building that once housed eight children and two parents. In addition are photographs of local families from the 19th and early 20th century, one family who boasted 22 surviving children !

They are all full of donated antiques from the area, covering a century of clothing, photographs, utensils and general items, many of which have been catalogued and lovingly restored by the dedicated volunteers who work here tirelessly here to preserve the history and heritage of the area.

I was so impressed with this place I would encourage all travellers to take the time to visit.
