Geelong Heritage Centre – Family and Local History

The new Geelong Heritage Centre and Geelong Library

Located on level 3 of the new library and heritage centre building, the Geelong Heritage Centre is Victoria’s largest regional archive. With 1.8 kilometres of public and private records, extensively described in catalogues and indexes, you are sure to find the information you need.

Staff and volunteers at the Heritage Centre preserve the collective memories of the Barwon Region’s people and places in the form of paper documents, books, photographs, film, and other artefacts.

Records produced by local government, businesses, clubs, societies, churches and individuals are made accessible for cultural enjoyment, education, family history, writing, publishing and administrative recall.
