About the Society

Established in 1956, the Hawkesbury Historical Society promotes and encourages the study of the history of the Hawkesbury and collects and preserves matter relating to the history of the Hawkesbury.

Membership is open to all residents of the City of Hawkesbury and others who agree with the objects and rules of the Association and who attend a general meeting of the Association.

The Hawkesbury Regional Museum has been operating since 1962, in premises in Thompson Square. Originally it was run by the Society but now the historical collection owned by the Society is housed in a purpose built museum at 8 Baker Street, Windsor directly behind the previous building. The Hawkesbury City Council now operates the museum.

The Museum is open from 10 am to 4 pm six days per week.
Closed Tuesday (except by appointment for guided groups)
Public holidays: Closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Good Friday.
Open 10am-4pm other public holidays

The Society meets on the fourth Thursday of every second month (February, April, June, August and October) at 7.30 pm in the Hawkesbury Regional Museum. Visitors are welcome. Guest speakers present topics relevant to the history of the Hawkesbury at each meeting.
