National Archives of Australia (NAA) This link opens in a new window
The NAA keep and care for significant records of the Australian Government. Most of these records were received, created or found by government agencies. The collection consists of tens of millions of items, and includes records about immigration, military service, transport, Indigenous Australians, science, the environment, and much more.
The collection documents Australian government activities since Federation. From dramatic events that shaped the nation to decisions that touched the lives of individual Australians, the records the National Archives holds are about people (whether ordinary, famous, infamous, or something in between) and their interactions with the Australian Government.
