St Helena Island is only 6 km south east of the Brisbane River mouth and was home to many of society's outcasts from 1867 to 1932.
Let our group of trained and entertaining tour guides take you back in time with a gentle 2 km walk as we visit the ruins of the Gaol, blacksmiths shop, punishment yard and sugar mill. Visit the lime kiln, olive grove and the fantastic renovated museum. Our tour guides take yearly refresher courses. We pride ourselves on factual history accounts, not made up stories for entertainment value.
TOURS: St Helena Island is a Heritage National Park. You are not permitted to walk around the Island without an accredited tour guide.
The TOUR IS NOT COMPULSORY, other activities are available if you would like to wait for the group to return.

Our new and exciting Education Program has been developed by our experienced guides (National Parks and Wildlife Accredited), making this the ideal school excursion by taking the drudgery out of history. The excursion aims to ensure that students and teachers step back in time and appreciate Queensland's penal past.
Students participate by using character identification cards and role-play to observe, question, investigate and problem solve. Props and heritage costumes can be used if requested.
Teachers Please Note: No extra cost is involved by participating in this NEW educational program.
