History is who we are and why we are, the way we are.

— David McCulloch

Children love our museum, with interactive displays and olde days artifacts to see.

The “Whooraboorabee” School was located in the Lower Nambucca area in the 1890’s.

The school is a curiosity for locals and historians alike as there is no official registration of the school with the Department of Education.

A original school photograph dated c.1894 was donated to the museum and the names of students from pioneering families have been identified, it is a great tale of discovery, hardship and perseverance.

It’s just one of the many stories you and your family will discover at the Nambucca Headland Museum. Your kids will enjoy ringing the old school bell, like those pioneer’s children did all those years ago.
