Port Macquarie Historical Society and Museum

Port Macquarie Historical Society and Museum was delighted to be named joint recipient of the Port Macquarie Hastings Community Group of the Year Award at the 2013 Australia Day Awards Ceremony on Port Macquarie’s Town Green. A small group of volunteers were on hand to share the moment; receiving a certificate and a beautiful Australia Day medallion from Australia Day ambassador Karen Banton.
The museum, its collection and themed displays tell the stories of Port Macquarie's rich and unique history and heritage. From the first settlers the Birpai people, British settlement in 1821 through to Port Macquarie's contemporary history as a tourist resort and sea-change town
