On Sunday 27 January, 2019, the Blue Mountains Historical Society’s 19th century cottage museum, Tarella, at Wentworth Falls, will be open for viewing from 10.00 am until 3.00 pm.

This is our first formal opening for 2019. Come along and view the many new items on display from our recently accessioned Florence Evelyn Moore Collection. 

The Sun Room Gallery has a new exhibition to greet the new year, An Aerial Disaster for John Britty North. 

The exhibition displays artefacts related to the collapse of the Bleichert Aerial Ropeway at Katoomba in 1889 or January 1890. These artefacts are largely from the Private Collection of Philip Hammon.

Photographs, from both the Philip Hammon Collection and the Blue Mountains Historical Society, display the ropeway and surrounds at the time of operation in the late 1800s.

A fine day will ensure our ever-popular garden stall is open.

Devonshire teas and soup (iced if a very hot day) are available in the Research Centre for a small charge. 

Entry charges to Tarella are $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for children. Entry to the exhibition is free with entry to Tarella. Please note that we can only accept cash; we have no card facilities.
