Who We Are

The Mundaring and Hills Historical Society (Inc.) was formed in 1989 to involve the people of the Shire of Mundaring in the acquisition, preservation, documentation and interpretation of the history and culture of the region. With offices in the Station Master's House in Mundaring, the Society has an extensive library containing an array of research material, as well as a collection of photographs and objects from the area.

The Society has two part-time staff, funded by the Shire of Mundaring, as well as a small number of very enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers. The Society also runs the Mundaring District Museum, located in the Old Mundaring School House on Great Eastern Highway.
