Welcome to the website of the Camperdown and District Historical Society.

Our Society is a volunteer based, non-profit organisation dedicated to the preservation, study and promotion of Camperdown & district history.

Our Society members meet at least every second month at times and venues to best suit the occasion. Our meetings feature some excellent guest speakers.

Regular field trips are held, sometimes to places rarely open to the general public.

Our Society also runs a ´Heritage Centre´, featuring a museum and excellent research facilities. Visitors are most welcome.
