A small group of interested persons in late 2011 decided to establish a group that would collate and preserve the local history of our area.

The Bunyip Historical Society’s home is at the Bunyip Hall and located in what is  colloquially known as the “RSL room”. We do not open to the public as yet, but is in our future plans.
