About Us

The Sandringham & District Historical Society was started in 1986 by a group of like-minded, local history enthusiasts.

With considerable community assistance, rooms were made available over a period of years for meetings and storage of our collected assets.

Eventually the City of Bayside allocated the Society a site of its own, between the library and the senior citizens' rooms in Sandringham.

Referred to as the 'Resource Centre', this site now holds various reading and research areas, a modern computer network, tearoom facilities and the society's archives.


The Sandringham & District Historical Society has an interest in the following areas:

  • Hampton
  • Hampton East
  • Sandringham
  • Black Rock
  • Beaumaris
  • Highett, west of the railway line
  • Cheltenham, west of the railway line

The Brighton Historical Society caters for areas of the City of Bayside north of South Road.

Visitors are always welcome! ( We are closed for relocation, from 12 November 2018 and reopening on Friday 7th December at our new premises at 31 Abbott St.)
