A Bit of Port Hedland History

In 2018 the Local History collection was enhanced with the help of our community in an initiative to help build up the content of our collection and was sponsored by the Pilbara Regional Council and supported by the Port Hedland Historical Society.  People in the community generously donated a range of items from photos to letters and diaries.  

The Town of Port Hedland is always looking to extend our 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.

We'd love to talk with you about items you're willing to share with us.  Please contact us:
