The Castlemaine Pioneers & Old Residents’ Association (P&ORA) held its first meeting on 17 March 1880 following some informal meetings amongst like-minded gentlemen who were keen to form an organisation to support one another in times of need and to enhance the society they lived in.

One of the early rules states ‘that the organisation will collect, store, preserve and promote the area’s local history.

The P&ORA is not a Historical Society as such, but we do own a lot of historical ‘stuff’ as past members were reluctant to throw anything out.

Opening Hours – Every Wednesday between 10am-3pm

2 Canrobert Street, Newstead VIC 3462, Australia 54.58 km

In 1863 the Newstead Court of Petty Sessions was built to the design of colonial architect John James Clark.

In February 1986 a group of interested people met and formed the Newstead & District Historical Society Inc.

In 1987 the Society applied through the then Shire of Newstead to the Department formerly named Conservation, Forests & Lands for the use of the old courthouse as a venue. The application was successful and since then members have carried out a great deal of work both in restoring and maintaining the building as well as collecting and conserving the history of the area. Our building is unique in that no alterations or additions have been done to it.
