The Clunes.org site has been around, in some form or another, since 2000. Over the years many good folks have developed, designed and maintained the many variations of the site, providing information to locals and visitors alike. In keeping with the strong community spirit of Clunes all this effort has been made free of charge. The latest version of this site is intended to to be our expression of our town to the rest of the world. Any member of our community can register and publish to the site. Business owners are welcome to publish their information to the business directory, club and committee members can publish their information as well. Writers write articles, photographers and artists create image galleries, individuals create blog entries and so on. Because there are so many folks creating content it is important for visitors to the site to understand that views expressed are those of the individual content creator, and not necessarily held by Clunes.org administrators, owners, or other members.
As you may have realised by now Clunes is rich in history and heritage, so we felt the site should reflect a bit of that in it's design and layout. It's not easy to create an historical web site but the way we went about it was to consider what would have passed for a web site in the 19th century. Newspapers were, of course, the natural resolution, particularly the Clunes Gazette which was published during the gold rush era when Clunes was a bustling hub of activity. Thankfully the Clunes Museum has a good store of old editions and were happy to let us scan a few. All of the quirky fake advertisements and dividers on the site were first published in the Clunes Gazette from the late 19th century to early 20th century.
As mentioned earlier this site, and it's predecessors, are the result of hard working volunteers and folks who have supplied professional assistance. Understandably, the number of people to be thanked are too many to list here, but here are few we would like to thank for their recent efforts.
To the many others who didn't get a personal mention, you know who you are and thank you.
No good website is a done deal and Clunes.org is no exception. The site is an ongoing beast with tons of new features planned for the near future, including -
