Local History

Townsville's history is the story of the place and its people. The local history collection is primarily a collection of books and artifacts donated by the people of Townsville, with a carefully selected collection of items designed to compliment this. This collection tells many stories; come in today, phone or email on historyandheritage@townsville.qld.gov.au to find out if we are able to assist you in your research, or simply visit the collection. Digital content is being created all the time; have a look at the video's, books and images. Many enthusiastic and dedicated family historians have participated in workshops to preserve family photographs and learn more about their family history.
