Ballidu Heritage Centre

A treasure hunter's delight

The Ballidu Heritage Centre collection is a dive through the ages, with memorabilia for the young and the young at heart. The beautiful old hall has display rooms set up like small stage sets. For example, you can be transported to a 1950s lounge room, equipped with film projector and record player playing Elvis records. The collection is also a delightful exploration of the history of Ballidu, woven together by the Centre's volunteers. The stage area of the old hall is set up with information about families in Ballidu, including wedding photographs and holiday snaps. Like many local museums and heritage centres there is also a display of servicemen and women from WWI and WWII.
