’The association aims to enhance community awareness of genealogy and the heritage of Sunbury and its surrounding districts by collecting, preserving, and displaying items of historical significance.

Members have promoted historical displays in a variety of venues and have conducted heritage walks.

The association provides a community service through its education research and publications’ programs.

Members of the Sunbury Family History and Heritage Society meet  on the third Thursday of the month to discuss current projects and exchange ideas about researching significant characters, events and locations.

To extend our role as collectors of Sunbury’s cultural and historical past, members volunteer their time by acting as guides for heritage walks and lectures as well as offering their services to schools, students, community groups and visitors. The group often receives letters and requests for family information, both from residents and non-residents. We provide a public advisory service about local history.

We also submit advisory papers to the local planning authorities, VCAT, and other Panel Hearings and join with other groups whose objectives are compatible with our own.
