Wollondilly Heritage Centre and Museum

The Wollondilly Heritage Centre & Museum is a focal point for Wollondilly Shire as the custodian of our local history. Dedicated volunteers have developed an award winning centre of excellence in the collection and display of significant items that tell the story of settlement in our region.

Their professional team develop changing exhibitions focusing on a variety of Wollondilly’s historical aspects. Included in the collection are extensive photographic records, family history and local history, specialised collections such as Burragorang, Yerranderie, Coal mining and Indigenous history of the Gundungurra people.

Open to the public every weekend from 10am-4.00pm, also public holidays except Good Friday and Christmas. Weekdays by appointment offers morning tea/tours for group bookings. Available also is a covered outdoor area with patio blinds and BBQ facilities.

The Heritage Centre operates a School Education Program on Thursdays during the school term which provides hands on experience of past and present life in Australia. Through an enquiry approach children explore a range of resources used by our pioneers.  Group activities include: working in a pioneer kitchen, making butter, cooking on a fuel stove, food preservation methods and sewing on a treadle machine.
