Oral History Project

With the co-operation of Oral Historian Trish Parker, Irwin locals, past and present, were interviewed to collect memories of historical importance. So far 30 interviews have been recorded on themes including farming, education and development of the town.

Below are some highlights of some of the interviews. If you would like to hear the whole story call into the Dongara Library, these audio books can be borrowed free of charge or purchased.
