The South Australian History Network encompasses over 300 largely community-run history organisations around the state such as museums, historical societies, interpretive centres, as well as libraries and archives of a local region, business, school or service organisation. It also includes re-enactment groups or those involved with restoring and running heritage transport and machinery or undertaking traditional trades or crafts. It’s an informal network that intends to bring together all those interested in or actively engaged in collecting, preserving and sharing our South Australian community history.
To this end the History Trust of South Australia has put together a website where you can explore the rich offerings of South Australia’s historical and collecting organisations. It is also a useful resource for those touring the state and wanting to discover South Australia’s heritage.
