*** TEMPORARY COVID-19 CLOSURE ***
Due to closure by the Shire of Yarra Ranges of the Healesville Community Link building (and simultaneously, virtually all other Council owned facilities) from 18th March 20, the Historical Society is currently unable to operate from its rooms. This means we are unfortunately closed until the COVID-19 crisis has appropriately resolved and the building can be reopened again. The closure of public spaces is designed to prevent spread of the virus.
UPDATE 26/4/20: Closure of the Community Link building is now likely to remain in place until 31st August. The Society remains closed but as the situation evolves we will update the web site and our Facebook page with more details when we have them.
The Society's rooms are located in the Healesville Community Link (at the rear of the Memorial Hall), 110 River Street, Healesville. This is the same building as the library; please ask the library staff for directions once entering the building.
We are open to the public from 1.30pm to 4.00pm every Monday and Friday or else by prior appointment. We are closed on public holidays and also on all Code Red days.
Meetings and outings are held on a regular basis; please see the Upcoming Events page for details. Meetings are normally held in the Healesville Community Link Meeting Room but this may vary for special events. For safety reasons, all meetings and outings are canceled on Code Red days.
All volunteers interested in the fantastic history of our town and district are always welcome, as are contributions of historic material. If you are considering volunteering please check out our Volunteering page.
Our Facebook page also contains photos and more information.
The Society is not for profit. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
We are all volunteers and we get a big buzz from history. Any extra help you might be able to provide will be extremely valuable to the preservation of Healesville's history for the enjoyment and knowledge of future generations. No special skills are required. Whether you are 15 or 105 years old, all you need is an interest in the absolutely amazing history of Healesville and District, a smile and a willingness to help out and make a difference.
We would love you to join us.
