The Koorie Heritage Trust (KHT) will re-open to the public on Monday 6 July 2020. Adhering to the Victorian Chief Health Officer’s guidelines, KHT will implement a range of public health and social distancing measures to ensure the safety of visitors and staff.


The Trust will restrict visitor numbers, with only 20 visitors allowed into the building at any one time.


We welcome members of the public to the current exhibition Affirmation now extended until Sunday 23 August 2020, shopKOORIE and the self-guided tours of KHTs collection on level 3.
