You're Invited to Make Hedland's History

Featuring special guest Richard Offen - Author, Historian and Broadcaster

The Town of Port Hedland is looking to extend its local history collection to preserve and celebrate the rich and diverse community of Port Hedland, and surrounding areas. Electronically collecting historical material makes sure items of significance are around for future generations to enjoy.

Do you have a piece of Port Hedland History that could become part of our collection? These items will be electronically scanned and preserved, with your approval. Items can include:

  • Photographs
  • Letters
  • Diary Pages
  • Wills, Deeds & Essays
  • Artefacts
  • Newspaper Clippings
