Displaying one of the largest collections of working pioneer tractors and agricultural machinery in Queensland, as well as authentic colonial buildings and heritage items, the Dalby Pioneer Park Museum is a treasure trove of history. Walk through the original buildings and catch a glimpse of the lives of our earlier generations. From old hand tools and implements used in the pioneering days of the Dalby district, to a working blacksmiths shop, antique firearm collection, a rare Chandler Hearse (one of only two left in the world) and a massive collection of Aboriginal artefacts, there is sure to be something in the Dalby Pioneer Park Museum to capture and intrigue every visitor. Of notable interest is the handwritten letter by Ned Kelly asking authorities to allow his mother to visit him in prison.

Pioneer Park holds an annual Field Day on the fourth weekend of May attracting visitors from all over Australia. The Dalby Family History Society is based at the museum and is available to assist people in researching their family history.
