Where our stories live!
Exhibition - Cook and the Pacific
Launch of the Cook and the Pacific display included an exciting tale of sailing on the New Endeavour along the South Coast of NSW.
We have launched our new permanent exhibition ‘After Hours’, featuring fashion, a tribute to the former School of Arts (Memorial Hall), and a ‘walk in and view’ homage to the demolished Batemans Bay Picture Theatre, including period films.
Many local residents contributed
anecdotes and memorabilia for this exhibit
– we hope it brings back memories of simpler times, for all our visitors.
