Formally the home of the Nestle condensed milk packing facility, built in 1896 the Concencery in Toogoolawah has a rich history. It was built by the McConnel family who still reside in the area today. It's now a gallery that hosts rotating exhibitions and is available for workshops and community art events.



Outside welcoming you is a large bronze red deer statue representing an important part of Toogoolawahs heritage; the gift of five red deer from Queen Victoria in 1873.



In the foyer, you will be greeted by whoever is on duty from the local Tourist Information. They are always your 1st stop to find out any information whether it's about the Condencery or your onward travels.



There is also a bomb shelter with unique historical diplays, but sadly it was not open on the day I visited.

The Condencery is open Monday to Friday from 9 am till 5 pm. Saturday and Sunday and public holidays, 10 am till 4 pm.
