Special Interest Clubs
Are you seeking specialised information or looking to join a club where you can meet and work with people of common interests? These are the organisations that operate within the village:
The Military Museum for the 11th Light Horse Caboolture Troop was formed in 1989 from a group of enthusiastic military history buffs and horse owners. The Museum preserves and displays artifacts and photographic memorabilia from all branches and periods of military service.
The AMRSQ has its own museum situated in the Village. This museum houses a collection of old machinery and engines including a very large Crossley that is the only operational machine of its type in the world!
The Club caters for all facets of wood crafting through its well-equipped workshop. The Club runs regular workshops in beginners and intermediate woodturning, pyrography and other workshops as may be required from time to time. Membership and workshop fees are applicable.
Members will gladly assist you in tracing your family history whether it is within Australia or overseas. The group has a large base of research resources that can be used to find what you are looking for.
The Gem Club is an independent club within the Village. If you are interested in rocks, gems, gem cutting, jewellery making, minerals or just going fossicking, then come along and join. You will enjoy meeting new friends with similar interests.
This talented group has been using the Village’s Stanmore Hall as its practice and concert base for at least 20 years. In that time the club has enjoyed a consistent following from people who enjoy good times, good friends and good music.
The FCAQ prides itself on the sharing of information about the keeping, exhibiting and promotion of pure breeds of poultry and other avicultural species in Australia along with their historical significance.
The club’s aim is to promote pottery as a craft and a hobby. Facilities available to the club members include 2 electric wheels, kiln slab roller, pug mill, extruder and a reference library plus heaps of bench space.
