The Society was founded in 1972, with the purpose of encouraging the study and recording
of the history of Sunshine and its district. Much work has already been achieved in preserving and cataloguing

items of history including letters, photos, plaques, trophies, newspapers, advertising signs and logos etc.  


This is a very long process and as usual there are too few people to do the work.  If you are a member with a

spare few hours a week or fortnight or if you are considering becoming a member of the Society and have a

little spare time, your assistance and companionship would be appreciated. 


You can also visit our contribution to the Victorian Collections


We are very chuffed that Olwen Ford author of Harvester Town and Harvester City was interviewed for the "Life Matters" program

Please Note:

Due to renovations at the Sunshine Library in Hampshire Road, the Society is now based at the relocated Sunshine Library in McCracken Street, Sunshine. 

You will find us there every Wednesday 2pm - 4pm
