Smith Crescent Brooweena, QLD 4620

The original offices of Woocoo Shire Council, formed in 1914 when World War I broke out, are now the Broowoona Early Settlers Museum where you can discover a wonderful variety of objects and paraphernalia from the war and about life in the country. The shire boasted an active branch of the Red Cross Ladies Auxiliary, which provided comforts to the men on the front to supplement their rations, including tobacco, biscuits and even socks. The branch also organised carnivals to raise funds for the war effort, enabling the purchase of a field ambulance that was sent to the Western Front in France and Belgium.
