Alan Tudge MP:
Did you know that Knox is home to its very own jazz museum?
Australian Jazz Museum located in Wantirna, is Australia’s leading jazz museum and has an extensive collection paying tribute to Australia’s significant contribution to the world of jazz both locally and overseas.
I was pleased to recently help them secure a small federal grant to buy a new computer system which will enable them to expand their online archive.
When open, they regularly host live performances which I’m sure will get right back into full swing as soon as they are able to.

The premier Australian jazz museum and home of the largest Australian jazz collection.

Proactively collecting, archiving and disseminating Australian jazz.


The museum requires help from people with Jazz knowledge for 2 important roles at the Museum.
1. Help in identifying Jazz people/ Musicians in the photos we have.
2. Help is also needed to sort the collections we have at the Museum
No Computer experience is required and no long-term commitment either
If you are interested, please contact Margot Davies on 0412 826 216 or call the Museum on Tuesdays on 9800 5535
