Inverloch Historical Society Inverloch, Victoria

The Inverloch Historical Society was founded in 1996. It has a large membership, most of whom reside in Inverloch. A number remain as members although now living interstate. Membership consists mainly of two groups, those who where born in the area,and retirees, many of whom spent happy times in Inverloch as children when their families camped along the foreshore. All are keen to learn what Inverloch and the surrounding districts were like in earlier times and to pass this History on by having strong ties with other Society's in the area.There is a Guest speaker at monthly meetings, two Historical bus tours each year for members and a Heritage bus tour where members from the eight Society's combine to view Historical sites. A monthly newsletter is produced, distributed to members, other societies and to points in the Community. A copy is placed in a display cabinet in the shopping arcade for the Community.

The Society owns a very detailed Collection of photographic and documentary memorabillia and displays are put in place at various venues for the public to visit. In 2009 the Society received a grant from the Commonwealth Government to restore the Inverloch Rocket Shed. The 108 year old Shed has now been restored to Heritage standards. An Interpretive Display will be placed in the interior. Coupled with the Replica of the "Ripple" at 22 The Esplanade Inverloch, the Shed and the Ship will form a Maritime Precinct.
