The Coalfields Heritage Group

The Coalfields Heritage Group & the Edgeworth David Museum
Kurri Kurri

The Coalfields Heritage Group operates a heritage centre (the Sir Edgeworth David Memorial Museum) where rich history and heritage information and material about the coalfields of the Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia, can be found in its library and archives. The Group, which was founded in 1996, researches, records, preserves, publishes and teaches its regional history freely to all who wish to use the facility.

The CHG does not undertake research requests at the present time, but researchers are encouraged to visit and use the resources. We welcome new members!
