West Wallsend District Heritage Group Inc.

Located in Holmesville on Awabakal Country, the West Wallsend District Heritage Group (WWDHG) preserves the local past and ongoing history of the West Wallsend region, presenting displays of locally significant artefacts and records.

Whilst the collection includes a diverse range of objects, knowledge, stories and memories, there is a particular emphasis on the coal mining origins of the area.

The WWDHG is managed by a team of dedicated volunteers who assist community members with heritage research and conservation. Since 2019 they have worked closely with Lake Macquarie City Council on the development of the Sugar Valley Library Museum, which will become the new home for their rich and extensive collection.
