Gundaroo Heritage Exhibition
12 May 2021
The Gundaroo and District Historical Society invites you to visit its exhibition 'Anticipate change or become its victim' between 10am and 4pm on the weekend 22–23 May at the Gundaroo Literary Institute.
Drawing on a 1975 report on the 'Township of Gundaroo', which was prepared for the National Trust to 'document the past and assess future development in the village of Gundaroo', the exhibition looks at how Gundaroo was at that time.
It shows buildings that have since been restored, some that have been modified and identifies others that are no longer extant. While some of the townscapes in the report have remained remarkably similar, others are unrecognisable.
The report was aimed at providing advice in order to preserve the historic character of Gundaroo through careful management 'of the imminent future development of the village'.
The exhibition will be open once a month until the end of the year. Visits will be in accordance with COVID-19 requirements.
A Heritage Walk Guide for Gundaroo depicting many of Gundaroo's historic buildings and sites has been prepared by the Society. The free brochure can be obtained from many of Gundaroo businesses and is also available, with additional information, online.
