HISTORY

Riki Wiki | Army Museum North Queensland
Jezzine Barracks has been  home to Australian military units for over 120 years and is now a fitting home to showcase the Museum and its extensive Collection of the history of the Army in North Queensland

The earliest history of the Army in North Queensland can be traced back to the early 1880's when volunteer Independent Rifle Companies were formed at towns throughout the northern region. On October 30 1886, the 3rd Queensland (or Kennedy Regiment) was gazetted and based at Kissing Point, Townsville, with Major William Slade Vincent as its first commanding officer.

The history of the Museum dates back to 1979, where the North Queensland Military Museum committee of management requested Townsville authorities that Fort Kissing Point be allowed to open as a Military Museum. The Fort operated as a museum until August 2008 when it was closed for further restoration. The North Queensland Military museum was renamed the Army Museum of North Queensland and relocated to its current premises in 2009.
