Thredbo Historical Society help

The Thredbo Historical Society was founded in 1995 and is a social/cultural/heritage organisation dedicated to promoting awareness of snow sports and the preservation of the evolving history of Thredbo Village for public display.

The Thredbo Historical Society manages and operates the Thredbo Ski Museum in the centre of Thredbo Alpine Village, NSW and collects, preserves and maintains a collection of snow sports memorabilia from 1890 to the current day. The museum displays a wide collection of historic items covering areas such as significant dates, geography, alpine pioneers, personalities, skis and alpine equipment, photos, clothing and fashion, films and books. It also has an expansive research library including a comprehensive set of Ski Year books.

In addition to the permanent displays of the above items, the museum features changing exhibitions depicting the rich history of the development and progress of Australian alpine history, Thredbo Village and the NSW Alpine regions generally. The Society conducts annual social events with a historical theme in Thredbo and at RAHS History House in Sydney, for members and the public.

Museum features include an early Kiandra ski, an Australian 1976 Winter Olympic uniform designed by Prue Acton and Laurie Seaman’s camera from his ill fated trip to Mt Kosciuzsko.
