Queensland Police Museum

The Police Station is around a 15-minute walk from the CBD – or, if you’re feeling lazy, it’s located right in from of Roma Street Station, which is one stop from Central on the Ipswich Line.

Starting the tour

Start from Central Station.

Section 1:
Directions:

As you exit the station via the main entrance, turn right onto Ann Street. Continue straight for around 10 minutes. Eventually you will see Roma Street branching off to the right, just after Albert Street. Turn right onto Roma Street. Continue down here for another 5-10 minutes. The Police Station is on the left-hand side of the road, and is pretty hard to miss as it’s so big – keep an eye out for Roma Street Station as it’s opposite.

Stopover:

Inside are a variety of things to see, mainly showing the generations of Australian police and highlighting the vast advances they have made in the last century. There is information on World War II, authentic uniforms, weapons, transport, photos, cabinets of unusual evidence, plus an unusual simulated ‘murder scene’ (which children seem to love) where you can have a go at solving the crime.

The museum itself is small but packed with everything you’d ever need to know about the Queensland Police Force – I must admit I was a little dubious whether this would keep me entertained for longer than 10 minutes, but most of it is pretty interesting.
