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.

Relaxing on Mount Eagle

Posted on Tuesday, 9th November 2021 by Janine Rizzetti

From our Facebook page November 4, 2021

Just sitting in a field on Mount Eagle on a sunny afternoon, near the corner of The Eyrie and The Panorama, looking across to Banksia Park and Templestowe. The house on the left hand side of the image is ‘Mundrabilla’ located at 44 Carlsberg Road, one of only two houses in Carlsberg Road at the time. The road that runs along the middle of the photo is Lower Heidelberg Road, and its intersection with Banksia Street is obscured by the large gum tree on the left. Banksia Street then goes off to the right, with a bridge across the Yarra.
