The Society offers research services in response to public queries about people, places and/or events relevant to the City of Willoughby. Our collection contains historical images relating to the Willoughby area and information on our suburbs, industries, commerce, schools, churches, health services, community organisations, etc. In addition, our volunteers work closely with the Local Studies group at the Willoughby City Library, which has a strong collection of historical documents and images.

We have a small charge for this service, namely $25 for an initial enquiry. However, we will also give you an Honorary Membership of the Society (valued at $20) for the remainder of the year. Any photocopying of documents etc. is at a cost of 20 cents per page.

Please be advised that we cannot guarantee that a search of our records will uncover any material hoped for. If this occurs we may either make suggestions as to other avenues you could pursue or provide a quotation for the Society to undertake further research.

For more detailed research enquiries, quotations will be provided on request.

For preliminary enquiries as to whether we have relevant material relating to your research, please email the society or phone us at: (02) 9410 3203


Please send your research enquiry with a cheque for $25 to:
