Sutherland Library houses a collection of historical maps, including aerial photography, of the Sutherland Shire.

There are a range of different types of maps including:

  • Parish maps
  • Sub-division maps
  • Valuer-general maps
  • Topographic
  • Walking and bicycle maps

These maps can be used for historical or house-hunting research. They can be found in the Local Studies and Reference rooms at Sutherland Library.

Aerial Photography

Our collection of aerial photography can be viewed from Shire Maps, the council's mapping application.  The most recent set is from 2012, however there are aerial photography maps ranging right back to 1930 available. After opening Shire Maps, click on the Aerials button (top right) and choose a year to view.
