Welcome to the Mudgeeraba Light Horse Museum!
Discover the Mudgeeraba Light Horse Museum, one of South East Queensland’s best small museums. Opened in 1980 as a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the preservation of the Australian Light Horse Regiment’s history, the museum aims to provide an authentic picture of the time as experienced by soldiers and their families.
Over our 32 year history, thanks to generous donations and the hard work of many unpaid volunteers, the museum’s collection has expanded to over 2,000 artifacts housed amongst heritage listed buildings. We are privileged to have on display the Laver Light Horse collection, the Broughton Western Front Panoramic Photo and Map exhibit, and the Butler Historical Collection.
Today the museum staff is composed of unpaid volunteers who are responsible for designing and installing exhibits, participating in public events, and generally sharing their knowledge with our visitors.
The Museum is also headquarters for the Mudgeeraba Troop 14th Australian Light Horse regiment. Historically, the Troop has been involved with local and regional agricultural shows, ANZAC Day parades, and with providing demonstrations of their award winning skill at arms and tent pegging.
The Museum is open every Sunday between 11am and 3pm and by appointment for schools and tour groups. Admission to the museum for individual visitors is by donation. School and tour groups please contact our Tour Co-ordinator on 07 5535 2455 or 0418 157 230 for further details.
