FLAG South West

There is a rich heritage within the area of Castlemaine Harbour: the mussel production, registration of the mussel banks, the fishing docks and general fishing heritage.

There is a unique local history resource contained within the community which has never been properly recorded or archived.

This project will attempt to gather and store this information in digital format; comprising of scanned photographs, audio and video recordings and documents pertaining to Cromane and the general Castlemaine Harbour area.  The preservation of this information is a key challenge. 

The project required the following additional resources:

  • redevelopment of the existing website (www.killorglinarchives.com)
  • the implementation of cloud-based technology in order to store a targeted 10,000+photographs and documents 
  • purchase of additional computer and recording equipment
