New temporary exhibition space in relocated historic Yamba church

Historic Yamba church moving to a new life

In early May this year the old Presbyterian Church in Yamba was moved to start a new life as a lively temporary exhibition space next to the Story House Museum in River Street Yamba.

When the federal government’s infrastructure development program was announced late last year the Member for Page, Janelle Saffin, successfully sought the support of the Clarence Valley Council for the project on behalf of the Port of Yamba Historical Society.

This project is one of 24 projects being carried out by the Clarence Valley Council with the support of the Federal Government’s Community Infrastructure Program. This program has provided the funds to repair, restore and fit out the church and connect it to the museum. The Council is managing the project in collaboration with the Port of Yamba Historical Society.
