Just like pixies and fairies, the beanies live in a tree
The Redland Museum is the local history museum of the Redland Coast region, situated in the suburb of Cleveland. It specialises in preserving the Redland's social history from 1842 to the present day.

On the first day of winter every year over the past ten years, the museum has been blessed by the blooming of a beautiful Beanie Tree, that sprouts woolly and colourful beanies and scarves that will keep you warm over winter. The tree disappears on August 31st with the promise of warm weather and birdsong.

These beanies and scarves are all hand made with love by volunteers and are reasonably priced.

If you are in the market for some headwear to keep you or yours warm, head along to the Redland Museum where you will also learn the history of the beanie. Now that's information always handy for your next Trivia Night.

The museum is open 7 days a week from 10am till 3pm. Entry fees are as follows:

Adults: $7.00
Concession: $5.00
Children: $2.00
Family Pass: $15.00 (2 Adults and 2 Children)

Otherwise, if you are just after one of these beautiful handcrafted items, have a chat with the staff on the front desk. We did, and we love our beanies.
