Have you ever visited the National Australian Archives? Do you have family members you'd like to research? Other events in Australian history that you would like more information?

Why not visit the local National Archives in Cannon Hill to do make some discoveries, or attend one of the events that are held, (though not so regularly since COVID-19 arrived).



Currently there is an exhibition on the Lytton Quarantine Station at the mouth of the Brisbane River until December 31st, 2020.



Lytton Quarantine Station is a heritage-listed former quarantine station, now part of the Fort Lytton National Park and in September 2000, it was added to the Queensland Heritage Register.



Currently the Researce Centre is open from Wednesday to Friday from 9 am to 4.30 pm and there is no cost to visit.



The last event for 2020 will be held on December 1st at 10 am, when the Queensland State Director, David Swift will provide an overview of the past year for the National Archives and discuss plans for 2021. This is a ticket only event as numbers are restricted due to COVID-19, so go to the website and book you seat. It is FREE. The Research Centre will not be open to the public on that day.







Check the website re hours over the school holiday period, as it would be an interesting place to take older children to learn a little about our Australian history.
