A Virtual Week in Canberra 2022 – Old Country, Young Nation (Stage 3)

On Demand

A virtual program that uses archival records to tell stories of Australian Federation. Students view the original Constitution and discover stories of Indigenous protest and activism.


National Archives of Australia (National Archives) invites you and your students on a virtual excursion to our National office in Canberra.

National Archives holds close to 42 million government records, created from 1901 to the present day. Every one of our records tells a story about Australia and its people.

On this virtual excursion you will:

  1. Learn more about the work of  National Archives, including our role as a ‘time capsule for Australia’;
  2. Enter our Voices gallery to view important foundational documents, including the original Australian Constitution;
  3. Discover records that tell stories of Indigenous protest and activism, and consider their enduring significance today;
  4. Reflect on the Constitution as a living document that has changed since Federation and can continue to change into the future.

After making a booking you will receive a YouTube link.

You will need to view the session before midnight Friday September 23rd.
