Community history

It might sound like a strange way to begin telling the story of our history, but the fact that our suburbs encircle Sydney all the way around from Balmain to Botany Bay has arguably had the greatest influence on why the inner west became the most important player in creating one of the greatest cities in the world.

Whether you want to find out the original owners of your house, take a self guided tour of the heritage listed buildings in your suburb or simply immerse yourself in the rich history of the inner west, there are a great number of services offered by our Community History and Heritage team.
