Visit the Historical Proserpine Museum, where you can learn about the interesting history of this sugar cane and cattle town. The establishment of a permanent museum in the Whitsunday region was a major initiative with strong support throughout the whole community. The facility is a multi-purpose venue, which houses the museum collection, and offers the opportunity for genealogical and extensive local history research. It affords educational benefits to their youth and has been embraced as a cultural centre for their local arts and crafts and travelling exhibitions. The museum will 'Bridge the Decades since Federation' with historical thought-provoking displays which showcase the most significant achievements of this region during the last century.
Enjoy a different Whitsunday experience and escape to the tropical refuge of the Conway Ranges in Conway National Park. This park contains lowland tropical rainforest remnants and picturesque rocky creeks. Stroll down an old logging road through tall, lush rainforest and notice seedlings fighting for light in small clearings. After veering left, you will reach a calm creek lined with Alexandra palms. You might catch a glimpse of a little kingfisher and hear the deep, resonating calls of wompoo fruit-doves. The Wompoo Walk is the start of the Whitsunday Great Walk.
