The Society operates out of our Research Centre in the Murwillumbah branch of the Tweed Regional Museum, located in the historic original Tweed Shire Council Chambers of 1915. The Museum was comprehensively renovated and extended in 2013-2014. It features significant objects such as a massive Robey steam engine, the original Council meeting table and a rich variety of other regularly-updated exhibits.
