The Busselton Historical Society is a Not For Profit Community Group that runs on a shoestring that depends upon the enthusiasm of its member volunteers.
The very first meeting of the Busselton Historical Society in 1938 cited its object was to record and collect the historical data of the district. This meant collecting and recording the artefacts and ephemera that illustrate the rich and diverse history of the Busselton area and to some degree the Southwest region.
We now find our role is evolving from building a collection to the conservation and preservation of this collection, the interpretation of this collection and working with the City of Busselton to ensure that we have a safe, relevant and educational community asset.
All members of our Society are volunteers who work hard to keep the Museum open, ensure it is a safe and friendly place to visit and continually strive to improve the experience for our visitors whether it is through technology or sheer hard work!
We also try to have a little fun a long the way. Every Tuesday we meet for morning tea and discuss what’s going on, tell a joke or two and plan what to do next.
