Exhibition at Old Post Office Museum

War and Warrandyte 1914-18 - Warrandyte Historical Society's tribute to the centenary of the First World War is a major exhibition "War and Warrandyte 1914-18". Visitors will be able to imagine what it was like to live in a small community like Warrandyte and find out who enlisted, how the community responded and what the outcome was for families.

The exhibition was opened on Friday 5 December at 7:00 pm by a WW1 descendent, and Warrandyte resident, Maxine Chapman.

The exhibition will remain in place over the corresponding centenary years of the war but will be updated as time progresses.
