Get involved

Since returning to our original base at Heritage House in 2013 we have consolidated and increased our annual activities through a programme of Exhibitions, Heritage Matters Talks, an educational Heritage Award, heritage support and participation in local events and numerous other pursuits.


Our membership are supportive and active.


We operate with the valuable assistance of volunteer Duty Officers who keep Heritage House open to the public every Friday, Saturday and Sunday - with increased opening times for special exhibitions.


Many tasks require additional volunteer hours and we welcome new volunteers. Please contact us on 9367 9243 and please leave a message.
