The Austinmer Project began in 2011 as an Australia Street Company initiative which sought to document the suburb’s social and cultural history through digital recordings of resident and visitor recollections.
The project is ongoing and currently a collaborative effort between Wollongong City Libraries and Sue Boaden.
Click on the residents’ names or photos for more information and to listen to their stories.
