What’s happening with Heidelberg Historical Society?

In line with Stage 3 restriction levels announced by the Victorian Government, our building is closed for all activities, especially for Monday and Thursday workday sessions.

Our October Guest Speaker evening is also cancelled.

We thank our members for their patience and understanding.

Members are encouraged to use the online resources available at this website for research, and for news about further developments.

As well as our photographs and maps, the Members section contains links to all 317 of our Heidelberg Historian newsletters. Material will be added to the blog and our Facebook page from time to time.

If you are not a member you can join by submitting the online application form which will be processed by our Secretary promptly.
