About National Archives of Australia

The National Archives of Australia can best be described as the memory of our nation – collecting and preserving Australian Government records that reflect our history and identity.

As well as preserving our history, the National Archives plays a key role in helping to ensure the Australian Government and its departments are effective and accountable to the people.

Under the Archives Act 1983, the National Archives has two main roles: to preserve Australia’s most valuable government records and encourage their use by the public; and to promote good records management by Australian Government agencies. In fulfilling these responsibilities, we ensure that Australians have access to a national archival collection so they may better understand their heritage and democracy.
