Our Events

The Society organises regular events and activities which have become increasingly popular. They are generally open to everyone with discounted entry for members. Some events may be restricted to members only because of space limitations at a site visit.

Upcoming events are shown on the right-hand side of each page on this site. We are increasingly documenting our past events and some of these can be viewed from the menu.

A joint event organised with the Marrickville Historical Society.

These events can be:

  • presentations by guest speakers or a member of the society,
  • displays of materials the Society has collected or had curated,
  • visits to sites that have particular heritage value or historical significance,
  • inspections of homes, churches and other buildings or areas that have a particular historical significance,
  • walking tours to visit multiple places often with expert speakers,
  • joint events organised in conjunction with other historical societies of associated organisations.

Almost all our events conclude with good spread of finger food, tea, coffee and great conversation. If the event is at Pratten Park Bowling Club the bar is usually open.
