Lakes Entrance Regional Historical Society, History Centre and Museum commenced operation in 1977
as the Tambo Historical Society. In 2000 the Lakes Entrance History Centre & Museum opened in the former Johnsonville school building, now located in Marine Parade, Lakes Entrance. Our collection includes manuscripts, books, ephemera, photographs, artworks, and maps.
Lakes Entrance Historical Society is affiliated with:
• Heritage Network East Gippsland
• Gippsland Association of Affiliated Historical Societies
• Royal Historical Society of Victoria
We are looking for items relating to our local history. If you have any old diaries, letters, business papers or even newspapers and magazines, we would love to hear from you. And of course, photographs and old artefacts of any description are always of interest.
While all donations are very gratefully received, we would just like to know what’s out there, to talk about the history and know where the treasures are.
Contact us via phone, email or Facebook if you can help.
