Promoting Hawkesbury's history/heritage events and groups

Dr Rex Stubbs OAM History Symposium
The annual history symposium is an information sharing and networking opportunity for members of all Hawkesbury Local Government Area historical societies and heritage groups, as well as those in immediate environs. It provides the opportunity for the representatives of groups to broaden their knowledge of trends in local and family history, heritage and collection management and to hear about projects that other organisations are focusing on.
