With some of our hardworking volunteers taking time off during winter to travel and seek some warmer weather, our regular Saturday morning opening sessions at Murchison Heritage Centre will be in recess til the spring.
Although tourist numbers dwindle during the colder months, we welcome visitors by arrangement during this time – group bookings can be organised by ringing Janet on 5826 2363. We are looking forward to hosting several group visits during June and July as we are always keen to share our unique history. The feedback from visitors is always encouraging and they tell us they enjoy learning about Murchison’s surprising and varied history.
Some Historical Society members will still be working behind the scenes with the important tasks of cataloguing, filing family history records, updating displays and revising some publications. We will resume regular Saturday morning openings in the warmer weather with some fresh displays organised and plans for History Week in October, to share nearer the time. Keep up to date by checking this website from time to time or register a link and you will be informed when a new item is posted.
