Little River Historical Society

Collecting, preserving and promoting the history of the Little River area


Welcome to the online home of the Little River Historical Society Inc.

The small rural township of Little River lies midway between Melbourne and Geelong, nestled in the curves of the Little River against a backdrop of the peaks of the You Yangs range rising from the plains. The town is built on a history of grazing and agriculture that dates back to the time of the squatters, and almost to the days of the settlement of Melbourne itself.

The Little River Historical Society was formed in August 2003 and aims to collect, preserve and promote our precious heritage. We hope you find our online home useful and welcome all questions and feedback.
