The Historical Society meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 9.30am at the Museum. New members are always welcome. The Museum is Dorrigo’s window on the district’s past, and a centre for the collection of district and personal histories, artifacts and photographs. The building is open to the public for the purpose of study, education and enjoyment.
We seek to acquire, conserve, research, communicate and exhibit the material evidence of the people and environment of the Dorrigo Plateau. Our area extends from Point Lookout and Guy Fawkes to Clouds Creek; to Lowanna and Maynards Plains and all places in between.

Dorrigo Community Markets are run by the Dorrigo Showground Trust as a service to the Plateau community. They are held monthly in Hickory Street on the first Saturday of the month, starting at 8am and finishing up around 12 noon. Stallholders are welcome from the Dorrigo Plateau and beyond.
The Market usually has around 35 stallholders presenting a wide range of goods and services to locals and visitors.
There are also representatives from community organisations that use the Market as a means of generating funds to assist in their operations e.g. Lions and CWA. Other stallholders include providores of jams and chutneys, conventional and organic fruit and vegetables, coffee, wines, cakes and slices, seedlings, bric-a-brac, handmade jewellery, pre-loved and new books, cards, flowers, honey, clothing, plants, food etc. Local entertainers often strike up a tune, complementing the social conviviality of the morning.
Please join us for some “fair dinkum” country hospitality!
