Welcome to the website of the Berrima District Historical and Family History Society. Our society was founded in 1960 to encourage the study of Australian, local and family history and to establish a museum and a permanent archive for the preservation of the documentary and material heritage of the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. 

Our collections cover the major towns of Bowral, Mittagong, Moss Vale, Robertson and Bundanoon and the many villages in the area including: Avoca, Aylmerton, Balaclava, Braemar, Berrima, Burrawang, Canyonleigh, Colo Vale, Exeter, Glenquarry, Hilltop, Kangaloon, Penrose, Sutton Forest, Tallong, Wildes Meadow and Wingello.


Our Image Library contains more than 8,000 images of people and places relating to our
area and beyond.  We are gradually uploading the collection, so keep checking to look for newly available images. To search for photos of your ancestors, houses, buildings, streetscapes and more, visit our Image Library.  High quality copies of all photos are available for purchase through our online shop.  Click here to go to our
