Heritage Network East Gippsland was established in 1996 to represent historical societies and family history groups across the region. HNEG acts as a conduit for member groups ideas and concerns at a range of forums.

Members meet regularly and interact on joint projects, including a biennial exhibition to which all groups contribute.

The network is dedicated to the protection and promotion of East Gippsland’s history.

We are supported by the East Gippsland Shire Council.
