About us

The Ku-ring-gai Historical Society collects, preserves and disseminates information on the history of the Municipality of Ku-ring-gai.

Our collection is held in the Old Gordon Public School (adjacent to the Gordon Library, 799 Pacific Highway, Gordon; Corner Pacific Highway and Park Avenue).

Our unique collection on Ku-ring-gai includes:
  • Over 10,000 local photos
  • Maps
  • Databases on local people and places
  • Books
  • Vertical files containing information collected over many years about Ku-ring-gai and its people

The photos can be viewed in the KHS reading room at the Old Gordon Public School. The reading room is open each Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 10 am and 2 pm, except the 1st Saturday of the month.

The Society provides assistance with local historical research and advice including research assistance (for a fee) on our local built environment and families. The Ku-ring-gai Family History Centre members meet monthly: the Centre provides a forum for interesting discussion and talks, and assists members with research.
