The Society is currently working on a project to build a monument in the old railway yard at St Marys to honour the convicts who built the St Marys Pass from 1843 to 1846. This project is still very much in the planning stage, but we hope to have a concrete plan in place in the next couple of months.
The fascinating story of the Dalmayne Coal Mine, which saw heaps of money and resources thrown at it back in 1917
for very little return, is now online
