Sutherland Shire Historical Society
Mindful of the Past..
Focused on the Future.
Sutherland Shire Historical Society, founded in 1966, is a community group interested in preserving and raising awareness of our local history – from Aboriginal occupation to the arrival of Captain Cook and white settlement.
We tell the story of our heritage in various ways: collecting artefacts for display in our museum, researching and publishing histories for our quarterly Bulletin, our website and other publications, and we work to help preserve our natural and built heritage.
Guided excursions to a variety of venues are available to members .
We acknowledge that we are on Gweagal country, part of the Aboriginal land of the Dharawal language speaking people.
We are respectful of traditions, culture and custodians, past and present.
Meetings are held at 1.30pm on the third Saturday of every month (except December and Easter) at the Stapleton Centre, 3A Stapleton St. Sutherland, with a range of speakers on a range of topics. Visitors are welcome at our meetings
