Local History 

We’re developing the Shire’s first Local History Strategy, which will set out how we preserve, collect, document, and promote the years of Tom Price, Paraburdoo, Pannawonica and Onslow, plus past towns of Old Onslow and Wittenoom.

This is an exciting journey, and we’re keen to know your ideas, and what’s important to you. We’ll be researching equipment that scans photos into digital format, how to convert cassette tapes and video recordings into a digital format, as well as how to document and store these for future generations to enjoy.
