Step back in time

The City of Sydney has a range of material for anyone wanting to know more about our history.

The City's history team has produced a number of books on Sydney's history, from the contributions of Chinese immigrants to the story of Sydney Town Hall.

There is a series of lectures and essays on Sydney's history that can be downloaded for free, and links to other history organisations.
