National Archives of Australia


The National Archives of Australia holds the memory of our nation and keeps vital Australian Government records safe. We do this so everyone can access evidence of government decisions and actions, making them transparent and accountable, and helping to safeguard our democracy.

The NAA’s collection contains records about key events and decisions that have shaped Australian history. It includes more than 40 million records, from federation to now. Our records connect you with the stories and people that define our past and shape our future.

The National Archives education portal is for students and teachers. To access curriculum-relevant resources and find out more about school programs and competitions, visit www.naa.gov.au/students-and-teachers
