Jeff Quigley from Emu Parks Studioquigs has stepped in at short notice to assist Rob Tait with the urgent rebuild and updating of the Museums Website. (4/7/2019)
The upgrade was forced upon the Museum via serious internet security matters and the fact that our previous website was seriously outdated it made it very vunerable to the possibility of such future attacks.
There has been no charge to the Museum for the setting up of the web pages, nor for the setting up of the web server and associated software to make the web site safe and user friendly.
As with our previous website, future work will be undertaken by volunteer members of the Museum with assistance and guidance of Rob and Jeff.

3 October 2018 – Emu Park Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank grants $979 for the printing of 2,000 colour brochures to advertise our Museum.
