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
