Did you know that the prosperous gold mining centre of Croydon was established in 1885 when gold was discovered in the area?

Croydon’s Heritage Precinct consists of the Police Sergeant’s Residence (c.1898), Police Station and Gaol (c.1896), Court House (c.1887) and Croydon Town Hall (c.1890s). The buildings feature artefacts and photographic displays interpreting Croydon’s rich heritage, and are open to visitors free of charge.

As one of the largest rural based Chinese settlements in Queensland during the gold rush of the late 1800s Chinese heritage features largely in the Croydon Heritage Precinct. This includes informative interpretation of the Croydon temple site.

Croydon Heritage Centre also has a large collection of genealogical information on Croydon families, dating back from 1886. The genealogical database has over 17 000 names, with many more to be added.
