The Blackheath History Forum is open to anyone interested in understanding Australian history in both its national and global contexts.  Our aim is to highlight ‘the past in the present’.

Between July 30 and October 22 we shall be hosting fortnightly talks at the Blackheath Primary School hall, corner of Leichhardt Street and the Great Western Highway (see map below). But please note that Stuart Macintyre’s talk on September 10 will be held at the Blackheath Community Centre, corner of Gardiners Crescent and the GWH, just opposite the train station.

Doors open at 3.30, talks start at 4.00, followed by a Q&A which generally ends around 6.00. Admission is $5 (free to those 18 and under). Refreshments are also available for a small additional charge.
