Welcome to The Wollondilly Heritage Centre & Museum

| No comments

The Wollondilly Heritage Centre and Museum is a repository for archives, records and objects relating to the early development of the villages in Wollondilly Shire. Exhibitions on display incorporate these objects and include the stories of our early pioneers and how they shaped life in our local area.

Included in the collection are extensive photographic records, family history and local history, specialised collections such as Burragorang, Yerranderie and Coal Mining and indigenous history of the Gundungurra people.

The Oaks Historical Society trained volunteers provide visitors with a unique insight into Wollondilly’s local history.

The Museum welcomes group visits, tour groups and school groups, however we do request you book in advance. School groups can be organised on Thursdays during school terms, other groups any day by arrangement.

Wollondilly – Take a closer look

NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service have advised Warragamba Special Areas will be closed from the 2-6 December for a specialised work program. The closure includes the Burragorang Lookout at Nattai and Mittagong to Katoomba walking trail where the walk crosses the Wollondilly River within the Schedule 1 area. Further information can be obtained from NPWS or their website.

We pay respect to the Elders and Traditional Owners of this land – past, present and future – for they have the wisdom, stories and memories which we all need to know about This Land.
