Avondale Heritage Centre

Heritage and Special Collections


The Heritage Collection was begun in 1974 with the intention of collecting material which records the origins, progress and activities of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

This collection includes:

Documents: church records/bulletins, letters, reports, minutes, biographies, stories, paper clippings, sermon notes/research, etc.
Films: home movies, evangelistic and mission, short features, etc.
Photographs: buildings, events, places, people, etc.
Charts: evangelistic, Bible, MV, Pathfinders etc.
Manuscripts: books, pamphlets and serials which are listed in the Avondale College Library Catalogue.
Models and artifacts: clothing, gowns, buildings, projectors, nails, tiles etc.
Videos: college and division productions.


The Special Collection, also housed in the Hon Heritage Room, was established to collect materials considered to be historically significant but not related to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the South Pacific. It mainly includes books which are listed in the Avondale College Library Catalogue.

The Adventist Heritage Centre is accessible by appointment or open to the public on Thursday. Please contact Rose-lee Power on Ph. 02 4980 2313 or Email heritage@avondale.edu.au.

If you have any material which you would like to donate to the Adventist Heritage Centre, please contact Rose-lee as above.
