Wondai Street Sprints

    Following the inaugural Wondai Street Sprint held in 2016, and the follow-up in 2017, the next event in 2018 promises to be bigger and better than ever. Held on a brand new asphalt track provided by the South Burnett Regional Council and run from a safety perspective under the banner of C.A.M.S. the committee is looking to build on the accolades received from competitors in previous years as one of the best events of its type they have attended.

    For 2018, a change of date to mid April is expected to encourage more Historic cars to the event and following the acquisition of more concrete barriers, spectator viewing areas will be extended and augmented by grandstand seating at a number of interesting locations. Over time, the Wondai Street Sprint is expected to become a major event on the sporting calendar for race cars in South East Queensland.

      South Burnett Region Timber Industry Museum

        Opened in November 2001, the Museum showcases the history of the South Burnett’s timber industry, which underpinned the early settlement of the region and has continued to play an important part in its development.

        The traditional timber structure is flanked by life-size sculptures of a bullocky and his head bullocks, an old water-well and post-and-rail fence. On the eastern end of the building is the stainless steel silhouette of a timber cutter. Inside, the wagon camp diorama, complete with restored bullock wagon, effectively captures the spirit of those involved in the felling and logging of timber in the early 1900s. Set against authentic wooden slabs and shingles, are displays of South Burnett timbers, artifacts and photos pertaining to the early timber industry in the region.

        A well stocked Gift Shop, featuring locally produced woodcraft, forms part of the incorporated Visitor Information Centre. In the Woodcrafters’ Workshop, constructed beside the Museum in 2003, local woodworkers regularly demonstrate their skills. A display of over 100 wooden mushrooms highlights the variety of timbers available.

        Wondai Heritage Museum

          Extending over 1,600 square metres, and divided into several differently themed environments, the Wondai Heritage Museum offers an uncluttered insight into the development, and the people, of the Wondai town and district spanning 120 years.

          Military memorabilia and social development is the theme of the Formal Museum, which features, in particular. the bugle captured by local resident Jim Houston and played by him at the 1945 Japanese surrender at Morati.

          The relocated 1910 Wondai Hospital operating theatre houses implements and history of a medical nature, and makes up the Hospital Complex.

          On a larger scale, the Machinery Shed houses many meticulously restored items, from sulkies and threshers to the extensive “Vince Miller” collection of timber tools, and that grand old octogenarian the “Dennis Fire Engine”.

          The 1930’s Slab Barn, complete with authentic shingle roof, is a fine example of pioneer construction, and now houses tools used by blacksmiths, cobblers, shearers and horsemen.

          For so long the hub of Wondai, the 1920’S Oddfellows Hall houses a display of intricate lodge regalia, but principally featuring theatrically-styled settings depicting, schoolroom, laundry, kitchen, bedroom, cinematic and printing room in a sauntering walk back through time.

          And did they mention it’s fun! Yes it is!

          Wondai Regional Art Gallery

            Dubbed ‘the art heart of the South Burnett’, the Wondai Gallery is sure to surprise and impress. Prominently situated on the roundabout, behind the eye-catching dingo sculptures and rock pool, the building now housing the gallery was the original Stationmaster’s residence, dating back to the early 1900s. It has been lowered and tastefully renovated, while retaining its old world charm, including the original timber flooring.

            A new Exhibition opens the first Friday of the month (except January), with artists attracted from throughout the State. A light supper is served and a local cellar door offers wine tasting. Usually, the exhibiting artists are on hand to discuss their works.

            As well, a ‘Kids Korner’ features art work from local schools. Works of pottery, silversmithing, ceramics and other arts and crafts are also displayed for sale. The recent addition of a workroom has allowed for the scheduling of children’s art classes and various workshops for adults.
