Support the Ration Shed Museum

The Ration Shed Museum in Cherbourg has been up and running since 2010 and has become the historical and cultural heart of the Cherbourg community.The Ration Shed has been visited by thousands of school children, Cherbourg community members, and people from the South Burnett region – visitors from near and far. They have come to find out more about our lives – to experience first hand what life was like for us living under the Aboriginal Protection Act.

We set out to give our community a strong clear sense of their history, a renewal of pride, to engage and to educate the people of Queensland and Australia about what we lived through and to offer a positive vision of the future. The number of visitors that have come in over the years is a sign of our success.

We have received funds to run various projects and at various times  – grants from government. We rely on funds from venue hire, tour bookings and donations to continue to grow our organisation and provide a vibrant cultural and educational centre that everyone in the South Burnett and beyond can access and enjoy.
