History of the Moreland Camera Club

The Moreland Camera Club was formed over 30 years ago, originally as The Royal Melbourne Zoo Camera Club. Membership was open only to employees of the Zoo, and the club met in the Education Resource Centre of the Zoo. In 1984, membership was opened to families of Zoo employees, and friends of the Zoo.
Due to copyright and intellectual property issues, the name of the club was changed to the Parkville Photographic Club in 1996, although zoo facilities continued to be used for meetings."

In late 2001, use of the Zoo facilities became unavailable, and the club meetings were moved to the Maurice McCrae Blackburn meeting room at the Coburg Library. At that time, as the club was no longer affiliated with the Parkville area, the members made the decision to rename the club the Parklands Photographic Club.

The club held yearly interclub competitions with the Broadmeadows Camera Club until that club ceased operating, and since 2003 we have held an annual interclub competition with the Preston Photographic Club.

In 2018 the club changed it's name to the Moreland Camera Club to identify the Club with its present geographical base. Today, the club has an active and energetic membership, who continue to meet in the Maurice McCrae Blackburn room of the Coburg Library on the second and fourth Thursday of each Month.

Thanks to Orsola Gizzi (former President 1987 - 2007).
