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’.
Our past speakers have included many of Australia’s leading historians, including Henry Reynolds, Judith Brett, Jenny Hocking, Stuart MacIntyre, Mark McKenna, and Humphrey McQueen. We’ve also hosted writers with strong historical interests like Tom Keneally, Paul Kelly, and Don Watson.
The 2019 program will be fortnightly from 3 August until 26 October. All presentations are held in the Blackheath Public School Hall on the corner of Great Western Highway and Leichhardt Street, except for the 14 September presentation which will be held in the Phillips Hall Blackheath Community Centre.

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 available from 3.30 for a small additional charge of $2 to $5.
