New website support

We’re excited to announce that with the $2350 funding from our wonderful supporters at Geelong Community Foundation we can begin work on developing our new website.

When updated, the site will include changes to navigation, improved structure of our content, so you’ll get more from a quick read as well as easier access to our resources. There’s a whole host of smaller but impactful changes, all to make your experience of the site that much better for you. There will also be a special place for ‘members only’ to access our research library that will be located within the website.

When we started Torquay Museum Without Walls we had big ideas, from publishing research to providing interesting reading. We also had the vision of providing a viewing platform for an array of historical images, videos and interviews. Our wonderful volunteers continue to work towards this vision as we all learn new skills. We will keep you posted on our progress.
