'Friends of the Museum' was established in August 2003, for anyone that shares our same interest in preserving the history of our region. Members of 'Friends' have been a great asset in assisting the committee in the work involved in setting up the museum.
The Museum committee was formed in June 2001 and was incorporated in November 2001. The aim of the committee is to collect and preserve historical and heritage material illustrating the growth and development of the Hinterland Region of the Gold Coast from the original pioneering days until today.
We plan to arrange and describe these materials and make them accessible to the general public on a regular basis as well as providing educational programs where possible to increase public awareness and appreciation of the Gold Coast Hinterland region's history and development.
We are always looking for volunteers to help with the visits we have from community groups as well as school children. No experience is necessary, we can arrange for your blue card and arrange for you to work with an experienced guide until you become familiar with the museum. We also have a need for volunteers to help with mowing, gardening, cleaning and even research into articles which have been donated! If you have a love of history and even a couple of hours to spare come and see our happy team and join us.
