Welcome to the website of
The Clyde River and Batemans Bay Historical Society
WE’RE LIKE THE TARDIS
- much bigger than we look!
We recommend allowing 90 minutes for your visit to the Museum, in order to gain a full appreciation of the scale of the Collections (and our Bookshops).
Museum Tours are led by volunteers who love to share the stories of our collection.
Personalised/Guided tours can be organised to meet the requirements of groups from 6 to 45.
Please contact the Secretary (02) 4472 1635, or email to [email protected] to arrange details.
A fee of $7.00 per head applies.
Include Morning/Afternoon tea in your booking – small fee according to your requirements
On Board Talks
Too tired to get off? Time limited? See our town through the eyes of a local heritage volunteer. It can be extended to include the village of Nelligen if required. It’s very popular!
With effect from April 2021, please note that the personalised on-board guided tour for $100.00 for a 60 minute tour has been temporarily suspended, due to ongoing construction of the new bridge over the Clyde and commencement of demolition works on the existing bridge.
