Sutherland Shire Historical Index

Covering the early days of the Sutherland Shire onwards, our collection of local newspapers are a great source for historical research on the Shire.

Over time, the library has selectively indexed articles from local newspapers and related sources.  You can use the index to explore the history of the Sutherland Shire. The index contains references to the following sources:

  • Articles from local newspapers between 1899 and 2013 (approximately)
  • Sutherland Shire Council meeting minutes from 1956-2013.
  • The First fifty years of the Sutherland Shire Council, 1906-1956 by David R Kirkby also known as the Kirkby Manuscript (KM).

Important : This is an index only. The source articles, minutes, etc. can be viewed in the reference library at Sutherland Library. You can see a complete list of local newspapers in the collection in the library catalogue.
