Thanks to your support, the moveable heritage collection of the Trial Bay Gaol Museum in Arakoon National Park will enter the modern age. Volunteers will work alongside Parks staff to digitise the collection, with a Registrar overseeing to ensure the data entry is accurate and to industry standard. Before some 8,000 remarkable objects, photographs and documents were at risk of being damaged, and could not be displayed all at once. Now they will be safe, accessible, and better able to share the stories of our past.
