Historical Society

The Discovery Coast Historical Society Inc. is a not for profit organisation. Originally known as Miriam Vale Shire Historical Society, due to Council Amalgamations when the Miriam Vale Shire became part of Gladstone Shire, the name was officially changed to the Discovery Coast Historical Society Inc.

The aims and objectives of the Society are to collect, preserve, research and exhibit items relating to the history of the once Miriam Vale Shire region from the earliest times to the present day.

The Society will encourage and support all communities in the original Shire to preserve and record the history of each individual community.

Mission Statement

The Discovery Coast Historical Society will preserve and promote understanding and appreciation of the Miriam Vale Shire’s unique history (pre councils amalgamation) and will continue to collect, research, preserve and promote the history of this same area (since councils amalgamation).


Volunteers staff the Museum during opening hours. If you would like to become a volunteer or member of the Society, please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
