“Preserving our past for future generations”

Located in Tuncurry on the Mid North Coast of NSW, the Great Lakes Museum is run by volunteers from the Great Lakes Historical Co-operative Society Ltd. We are a Not-for-Profit social history and maritime museum engaged in collecting, researching, preserving and exhibiting artefacts and documentary material relating to the area. Our friendly staff are happy to share their knowledge with you or your organisation. We welcome bus groups, schools and interested organisations for personalised guided tours of the Museum, by appointment. Morning or afternoon tea can also be provided upon request.

Only 3 hours north of Sydney but a world away.
Tuncurry is the northern gateway to the Great Lakes and at its heart ♥ here you will find the Great Lakes Museum located at 1 Capel Street. A hidden treasure trove of history.
