Whitehorse City Council’s annual Heritage Week will be held from 10-17 September 2015.

This year, we celebrate the ANZAC Centenary with a particular focus on commemorating the involvement of Whitehorse residents in WWI.

Heritage Week provides a wonderful opportunity to be part of the Whitehorse community.

The Program of Events cater for a range of interests and offer the opportunity to connect with other people as well as the incredible history of war times past.

In keeping with the theme we'd like to share some WWI recipes for you to make at home.

For more information please phone 9262 6478.

Australia Calls

On the centenary of the Gallipoli landing, Australia Calls is a heritage exhibition that examines the impact of war on Whitehorse.

A fascinating collection of diaries, photographs, newspaper extracts, poetry, artefacts and memorabilia will convey touching accounts of those who fought first hand and those who contributed to the war effort from Australian shores.William Talbett c.1916 Image courtesy Box Hill Historical Society Inc.

"About one in twelve of the population of the Shire of Nunawading enlisted for active service in the war of 1914-1918. Of these, one in six were killed. It was a death toll of one per cent of the Shire, a one per cent which included inordinate numbers who would otherwise have become leaders of their generation. It was a toll no community could afford.”

Council acknowledges the financial support of the Department of Veteran’s Affairs for the Australia Calls exhibition.
