The Stonnington History Centre is an archive dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of the City of Stonnington and its antecedents, the former Cities of Malvern and Prahran.
The Centre is a branch of Stonnington Library and Information Service and provides our community with local history information and services.
Situated within the historic Northbrook House, the Centre is located behind Malvern Library and near Malvern Town Hall.
A car park out the front of Malvern Library has two disability-permit parking spaces (timed restrictions apply).
Make a research inquiry or appointment request
Please advise us in advance of your visit if you require assistance with accessibility, as there are steps from the carpark through the grounds with further steps up to the front door.
Access to some material may be restricted because of its confidentiality, rarity or fragility. Viewing and reproduction permission is given at the discretion of staff.
Any material contained in the collection which does not fall into the restricted access category will be made accessible to the public for research purposes by appointment.
