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.

The exhibition will be open during Museum Opening Hours, Saturday and Sunday, 2.00pm to 5.00pm.
