Welcome to the Geelong Heritage Centre Archives
Known as the Vault Kim barne thaliyu (Here yesterday, in the language of the local Wadawurrung people), the Geelong Heritage Centre is a specialist resource for those conducting family history research or exploring the local history and cultural heritage of Geelong and surrounding areas.
The Geelong Heritage Centre Archives preserve the documented history and stories of the region which live on in public and private records, newspapers, maps, plans, photographs, memorabilia, films, paintings, artefacts, clocks, honour boards, trophies, ceramics, clothing, diaries, journals, newsletters and much more.
From this website you can search the Archives and request further information about records that interest you.
We invite you to visit the Geelong Heritage Centre in person to further explore the collections, request an item from the repository, engage with our specialist staff or just enjoy the contemporary and inspiring surroundings of the Reading Room.
