Welcome to the website of

The Clyde River and Batemans Bay Historical Society

(Accredited under the National Standards for Australian Museums and Galleries)


The Society welcomes all levels of skill and life experience. We offer a range of projects and activities including photography, administration, exhibition building, day to day maintenance, publications and fund-raising - not forgetting an interest in promoting local history! We offer regular social activities, training opportunities, and a quarterly newsletter.

Can't help physically? Join without the 'hands on'. You are supporting local heritage just by being a member. You will enjoy all member benefits without being asked to guide school kids or man the BBQ!

Prospective members are warmly invited to CONTACT US to organise a

NO-OBLIGATION guided tour and chat about what we can offer.

Executive Committee meetings & notification to General Membership

Meetings of the Executive Committee are held monthly at 10.00am on the third Tuesday, while the Annual General Meeting is held annually in August.

General Membership meetings are no longer held as most members are active within the museum. The quarterly newsletter ('Pastimes') will carry a full page of Executive decisions and activities. An enlarged copy of the newsletter will be displayed on a more prominent 'Member Noticeboard' in the Kitchen. General members are also welcome to attend Executive Meetings or view the printed minutes.

During 2020, all existing and new members will be issued with a membership card.
