The Buchan Heritage Group operates out of the historic butter factory, which it is currently restoring in accordance with Heritage Victoria guidelines. Special displays are also featured in the Butter Factory at Easter and Christmas. The group’s archives include audio recordings of community forums on the history of different localities in the Buchan district.
Paynesville Maritime Museum (PMM) is dedicated to researching, recording and retelling the maritime heritage of the village and surrounding area of Paynesville on the Gippsland Lakes in Victoria, Australia.
PMM is open on the second Sunday each month from 9.00 to 12.30. (Same day as the Community Market).
We concentrate on the activities on the area of the Gippsland Lakes close to Paynesville, which includes the building and operation of steamships, the fishing fleet and boating tourism.
