Local History

For almost thirty years historians, students, consultants, councilors, teachers and genealogists have been researching local history at the Geelong Heritage Centre.

We provide access to locally produced public and private historical records from 1838 to the present. Records include material produced and collected by councils, churches, organisations, businesses, clubs, societies and individuals.

It is important for any community to keep historical records and be able to access these records. The identity of Geelong’s people and places is reflected by the stories told in documents, photographs and other objects held in the archives of the Heritage Centre.

Access to indexes and catalogues will help you to narrow down your search and our experienced staff can suggest records you may not have thought of. Just about anything you wanted to know about the history of the Geelong region can be found in the Geelong Heritage Centre.
