Welcome to the History Council of New South Wales
We are the peak body in NSW for historical organisations and those interested and concerned about the past. We give history a voice.
In successfully pursuing our goals in the five key areas of advocacy, awareness, encouraging diversity, rewarding excellence and outreach, we aim to ensure that history in all its forms is a part of life, in policy and in practice, throughout NSW.
