The Warrnambool & District Historical Society (WDHS) was founded in 1966 with the object of gathering information and items of local historical significance and preserving them for the enjoyment of future generations.
The Society studies the history of Warrnambool and interprets that in the form of exhibitions, publications, guided tours and public presentations in order to foster a greater understanding of the people and historical processes which have shaped our community.
History House is an approved Public Record Office of Victoria Place of Deposit (POD) for local historical items.
Members are on hand to assist with historical enquiries and remote research queries can be undertaken by our research team. These services incur moderate fees based on an hourly rate.
Photographs from our collection and a variety of books and booklets on local history are available for purchase.
