Bulahdelah Historical Society President Kevin Carter said although the museum is currently only open on Saturdays, the new tour stations, accompanied by a brochure explaining the historic objects and artefacts, will enable people to visit every day. “The grounds hold all sorts of items relevant to the history of the area including log dobbies, old ship boilers and fossil rocks, but without some type of interpretive information, you wouldn’t know what they were,” he said. “The funding is going to give us the opportunity to have a sign next to each item and brochures on the walls enabling people to learn as they have a look around.” Kevin said the self-guided tours will be another “selling point” for the town which continues to attract increasing numbers of visitors each year. Myall Lakes MP Stephen Bromhead announced the funding last week which comes from the Volunteer Museum Small Grants Program to facilitate vital improvements for volunteer-run museums. Mr Bromhead said the self-guided tours are a ‘brilliant idea’ and congratulated the committee for their initiative. “Bulahdelah Courthouse Museum is a fantastic part of the community and it’s wonderful to know that this support will lead to some valued improvements,” he said. “This investment is very welcome, and I look forward to seeing the results.” Bulahdelah Historical Society President Kevin Carter accepts the funding grant from Myall Lakes MP Stephen Bromhead.
