Exhibition - The Boys from Burragorang and Beyond

We are opening a new gallery space in the Wollondilly Heritage Centre & Museum featuring the stories of local servicemen who served in WW1 because we now have a space in which to display our growing collection of memorabilia together with loans from local families. The Burragorang Valley is significant to the development of this museum because it was flooded in 1960 to provide water for Sydney and people lost their physical heritage but maintain this through the collections in our museum.
