Hobby's Reach Research Centre

This building, which has wheelchair access, houses our vast collection of records of people, places and events in the Blue Mountains and includes a Library, maps and a newspaper collection.

There is also a large lending library for members containing books on Australian history and that of the Blue Mountains.

This is a valuable resource for architects, publishers, estate agents and the general public.

Private research may be undertaken or a researcher can undertake this research for you at a moderate fee. Straightforward enquiries are generally answered at no cost. When research is involved, we will advise the cost in advance. From 2014, house histories are undertaken at a fee of $50 for personal use and $75 for commercial use.
