If your community group or sporting group is writing or publishing its own history we may be able to help.

The City offers sponsorship opportunities for local groups undertaking research or publishing their history under its Community Sponsorship Program. Groups and individuals could even win an award for their work!

There is substantial information about the area's history available at the Local History Collection (see related links below). To research local historic information online, access the City's library catalogue.

Individuals may find the memory prompt (linked below) a useful aid when writing their own life history.

Workshops on related topics are occasionally available through the City’s libraries.

The Local History Librarian is available to provide advice on research by calling 9391 6010, or by completing this online form:
