Historical information

The Kew Historical Society was formed in 1958. The Society has communicated with its members, and the wider public, through its newsletters since 1977. These newsletters contain information about members, events, research, and collections.


The newsletters of the Kew Historical Society contain significant research by members that explores aspects of the Victorian and Australian Framework of Historical Themes. Frequently, articles on people, places and artefacts are the only source of information about an aspect of Kew, and Melbourne’s history. The contents of each newsletter as such is often significant historically, aesthetically, socially and or spiritually.
