In 2011 there wasn’t a common Website that focused on the Historical Areas of New South Wales, Australia. We decided to form a group called Historical Encounters to fill this pocket, and go out and explore our rich heritage.

Historical Encounters was founded by Michael Hatherly & Ashleigh Moffatt back at the beginning of 2011. At the end of 2012 Jessalea Leach & Samuel Williams joined the team providing the team with some new younger insights into the historical field. Due to personal reasons, Ashleigh had to pull back in her involvement in late 2013, Samuel in mid-2016 & Jessalea at the start of 2018.

We have many more people who support us either behind the scenes, photographers, researchers, explorers and owners of properties, which without their help this would not be possible.

We do provide services, ranging from research, and time photography to presentations.
