The Heidelberg Historical Society Museum is now open on Sundays from 2 pm to 5 pm

Truth, Beauty & Utility Exhibition now open

This exhibition traces the Arts & Crafts Movement, from the sudden craze for Japanese-inspired decoration in the 1880s to the non-historical ‘Art Nouveau’ of 1900, to the rugged Californian bungalow of 1920—all as seen in our local area.

‘Truth, Beauty & Utility’ is now open at the Museum and can be viewed on Sundays from 2 pm to 5 pm.

Please note that for the remainder of 2021 the Research Room will not be open on Sundays due to density requirements. The Museum will be closed during December 2021 and January 2022.

A day on the river

From The Lost History of Melbourne/Victoria and Its Pioneers

This postcard from 1904 shows children paddling in the shallows of the Yarra River. The Banksia Street bridge in the background was constructed in 1863, replacing Levine’s Punt which had linked the Heidelberg and Templestowe sides of the river since 1842. A pipe bridge was built beside it in 1930. In 1960 one part of a new bridge was constructed as a three-span continuous steel and reinforced concrete bridge and a duplicate bridge was added in 1974-5. It’s worth stopping off to have a look at the bridge more closely.
