Local Studies

A community’s history plays an important role in the way it defines itself and the Shire of Dardanup is no exception. Our libraries offer a selection of items that promotes the history, culture and development of our local area.

The Shire of Dardanup Library Local Studies collection includes:

  • Oral Histories
  • Maps and Plans
  • Photographs
  • Transcripts and Memoirs
  • Histories of the local and surrounding area
  • Unpublished Materials

Shire of Dardanup works alongside the Dardanup Heritage Collective to continue to understand and define our local history and build our collection of materials. If you would like to make a donation to our local studies collection please contact us. <link to contacts>
