On 16th February 2024 the Lorne Historical Society opened its latest exhibition “100 Years of Natural Disasters”. The opening coincided with the 41st anniversary of Ash Wednesday.

The exhibition curated by Gary Allen, is more than bushfires. It looks at the effects on our township of floods, high seas, storms and the pandemic.

The exhibition is open every Sunday from 10.00 am until noon and the Society encourages people to record their stories. The Society wishes to thank the local CFA and Dee Stewart in particular, for the loan of memorabilia. Also to the Anglesea Historical Society for their assistance.
