Geographical and cultural context
The Society sees itself as a custodian of the past and also the guardian of the present for the benefit of future generations who will share in their time the privilege and pleasure of living in Hunters Hill, Australia's oldest garden suburb.
Hunters Hill Museum holds extensive local records, dating back to early colonial times. The records include artefacts, paintings, pictures and photographs, maps, documents, newspapers and books.
