National Archives of Australia
There are surprises in store at the National Archives of Australia! This heritage building (Canberra's original post office) houses treasures from the Archives' world-class collection.
Visit to discover Australia's history through exhibitions, events and more. See Australia's 'birth certificates' in the Federation Gallery - often open for 'sneak peeks'. Exhibitions range from banned books to artwork, historic photographs to spies' secrets. Delve into your family history in the Reading Room, browse in the store or visit their website to explore the Archives online. You may even find yourself in their incredible collection!
