Cairns Historical Society
The Cairns Historical Society's Research Centre and Museum is closed to the public from 24 March 2020. Rest assured they are still working. If you have a history research or photographic request, please e-mail and they will follow it up. The next set of local history lectures which was to be held on the 18 April has had to be cancelled because of the Covid19. These lectures will still be presented when it is appropriate for the Local History lecture series to resume. Nominations are still being called for this year's SE Stephens History Award with the closing date being the end of June. The Museum will be working to shift their child-friendly activities online. So please keep an eye on their social feeds and on the website for updates. They will keep you informed but due to the rapidly changing nature of the situation, they are not announcing a re-opening date at this time and will provide update on a week-to-week basis on their website and social media channels. Keep an eye on these pages as they are exploring a range of ways to stay in contact and to save you all from Netflix.
