Esperance Bay Historical Society are proud and excited to announce the launch of the new EBHS website www.esperancehistory.com.au!
The new EBHS website has a clean simple design and consistent site-wide navigation to help you find your way around with ease. It is also fully responsive with mobile devices, making it easy to navigate on a wide range of web browsers and devices. Above all, the website has been developed to allow an easy browsing experience for anyone interested in Esperance history.
This website project was funded by a Royalties for Regions – Goldfields-Esperance Community Chest Fund Grant, awarded to EBHS in 2017. The goal for this project was to transition the Esperance Bay Historical Society into the digital age.
