A significant development within the North Pine Country Park was the opening of the Pine Rivers Heritage Museum on Australia Day, 26 January 2000. This farsighted concept was the brainchild of Pine Rivers Shire Councillor and Deputy Mayor, Bryan Galvin, who believed that the heritage museum should be regarded as “a gift from the residents of the old millennium to those of the new”. The museum encourages visitors to explore the district’s historic character through permanent displays, multimedia presentations and constantly changing temporary exhibitions. The museum complex includes Yebri House, the historic cottage moved from the Petrie family’s Murrumba Homestead precinct in 2006. It is a Campbell pre-fabricated kit house built in the mid 1890s which has been fully restored and furnished to represent the 1920s era.
