While indexing old copies of the 'Eden Magnet' for the Eden Killer Whale Museum, I recorded the local news from the settlements of Pericoe, Burragate and Towamba for my own interest. But, of course, we do these things without knowing what the eventual outcome will be. As the collection grew, I added what news I could from other sources eg., 'The Pambula Voice' and other newspapers as they became available online, to give an overall picture of life in the Towamba River Valley from the first settlement. A few items of news extend beyond 1935.

I hope you enjoy reading about our area and what images I could find to brighten up the text, they are all there for your interest and enjoyment.

The site is regularly updated.

In October, 2013 the National Library requested permission to archive the Towamba Valley History website in the PANDORA Archive so as to provide public online access:-

"The State Library of NSW is committed to preserving selected websites of lasting cultural value for long-term access by the Australian community. Only a relatively small number of websites are assessed as being significant enough for PANDORA and we would be grateful if you would allow us to include yours.
The Library will catalogue your website and add the record to the National Bibliographic Database (a database of catalogue records shared by over 1,100 Australian libraries), as well as to our own online catalogue. This will increase awareness of your website among researchers using libraries."
