The Collection

Berowra Living History has a unique collection in many different ways. We are fortunate to have a variety of photos, ephemera, items and even oral histories which have been donated to and shared with us to enable creation of the Museum Of Berowra. Yet Berowra Living History owns very few of these items. Our collection is almost entirely digital, consisting of photographs and scans of items, images and documents which have been shared with the team by the Berowra community, past and present, and even by visitors to the area.
