The Museum collection includes:
- a soft drink bottle from the first soft drink manufacturer in Gordonvale (then Nelson). The bottle features the manufacturer’s trademark M.Muir Nelson Qld
- an early 1900s wages book, and mill ledgers showing farmers accounts, from the Mulgrave Central Mill.
- a girls’ fancy dress costume from 1924 printed with the news of the day at the local Cairns Post Press. The calico dress began life as a suit printed for a gentleman for a special occasion, but during the Depression it was recycled into a dress, reflecting the ingenuity and skill of local needlewomen.
- a linen table cloth, embroidered with the signatures of the guests at an Anglican Church function in Gordonvale during WWII. The signatures include those of the 503rd American Paratroopers, who were stationed in Gordonvale during the war.
