Village claims its own spot

MEMBERS of the Hervey Bay Historical Village and Museum have worked tirelessly since its opening in 1974 to preserve and educate on the history of the Fraser Coast.

The museum is completely self-funded and is run by a team of more than 100 enthusiastic volunteers.

It has received numerous awards and recognition and even made it into the Fraser Coast and South Burnett Tourism Board’s Hall of Fame in 2009.

As an integral part of the local education curriculum, many school groups visit the museum throughout the year to embrace the history of the area.

With plans to expand its collection to include local audio recordings and memoirs this year, and the museum’s ongoing commitment to preserve and display the cultural heritage of the local area, it’s no surprise that the Hervey Bay Historical Village and Museum has another award to add to its collection.
