Welcome to Buda Historic Home & Garden 

Seeking Donations

Buda is seeking donations to assist with a shortfall in annual income in the 2016 financial year of $7,000. Further to this we have had urgent and unavoidable garden maintenance outlays of $6,000 on top of our budgeted costs for the year, which has put a strain on our operations.
Buda Historic Home and Garden is a not-for-profit organisation with the mission to enrich our communities with a better understanding and appreciation of Australia’s gold rush history and the ensuing changes in society.

Maintaining our rare and irreplaceable heritage assets here in Australia today is ensuring their preservation for future generations to enjoy. The Committee of Management, staff and volunteers at Buda are committed to maintaining and conserving Buda’s significant house, garden and collections.

We hope that you will support us in our efforts to continue to do this work.
As the financial year draws to a close, we'd like to remind our members that your donations would greatly benefit Buda at this time. Donations made to Buda can be claimed as a tax deduction in your income tax return as Buda is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR). Receipts will be issued for all donations.
