208 Barker St Castlemaine 3450 73.6 km

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
