This library is temporarily closed. Find out more about the status of our services.
Our Local Studies Library offers a wide range of information about the history, culture, environment and development of the Gold Coast region. Our resources include stories, images and documents recording our city’s history and heritage. You can currently access many of these resources online.
If you want to learn more about the Gold Coast, are curious to see how your suburb once looked, or interested in tracing your family history, we’re here to help. Please email us with any non-urgent requests.
The Local Studies Library is currently unable to accept donations of heritage and other items in any format.
We are responding to all enquiries as quickly as possible, prioritising urgent requests such as information required for court cases and development applications.
We're always interested in your feedback and looking to improve the website wherever possible.
