The Discover Hunters Hill organisation is a not for profit organisation that was created 10 years ago with the aim to connect community, business and residents, and share knowledge, information and events in the Hunters Hill Municipality, leading to great relationships and a stronger community. They have a committee of 5 business owners and 5 community leaders, as well as chairman Ross Williams. In the last two years they have launched themselves onto the social media scene with a DHH Facebook page and just recently, Instagram. Through social media they have been able to connect what is happening to the community and beyond.

To keep up with what's going on in Hunters Hill go to their Facebook page and like them, or you could also keep up to-date on Instagram.

As this is their first Art | History Walking Tour they are looking forward to sharing so much art and heritage with you that you want to tell your friends and family about it and come back next year.
