Historical Sites of Logan

The City of Logan is one of the fastest growing cities in Queensland, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to forget its past anytime soon. In fact, Logan is home to many great – and diverse – sites where members of the public can learn more about the region’s rich heritage.

From museums to former factories and even a rum distillery, here are some of Logan’s most fascinating historical sites.

Leave the 21st century behind and time travel back to another century at Beenleigh Historical Village, a well-kept secret that which would have to rate as
In 1871 young couple John and Emily Hayes immigrated from England, having apparently been lured by stories they heard from relatives and local settlers the Kingstons. A priceless time capsule of a pioneering family
Home to thousands of artefacts, the Logan Village Museum is a must-visit destination for all history buffs
Beenleigh Artisan Distillers is home to Australia's original rum. Founded in 1884, on the banks of the Albert River, Beenleigh is the oldest registered
While not much has changed on the outside of this iconic building since 1932, the former factory’s interior and grounds are undergoing a $12 million makeover, due for completion in early 2020
Twenty fascinating sites feature along this self-guided trail, including the illuminated Forest of Memories art installation plus Logan Village Museum and Beenleigh Historical Village
Following the Mt Lindesay Highway, highlights of this trail include Gallipoli’s Mirage commemorative artwork, Tully Memorial Park, and remnants of the old Beaudesert rail line and Veresdale station
This trail is packed with historical sites, including two war memorials at Springwood Park (including one for Indigenous Light Horsemen), plus several historic cemeteries of great local significance
Along this trail you’ll come across Mayes Cottage, the Woodridge Station Masters’ Cottage (built in 1886), plus the Woodridge Progress Association Hall, used as a provisional school from 1924-1932
