The National Archives of Australia is a Government organisation that collects and preserves Government records that reflect our history and identity. Documents held trace the events and decisions that have shaped the nation and the lives of Australians.

Did you know that there is a branch of the National Archives in Brisbane responsible for preserving the history of Queensland? The archive consists of tens of millions of items and includes records about immigration, transport, Indigenous Australians, science and the environment and more.



I only learned this after attending a fascinating presentation about the military sites across this State. Nearly 600 sites all told - can you believe that? I tell you, the National Archives have the documentation to prove it, with maps, correspondence, reports, invoices, and photos.

There are three presentations scheduled for the coming months and all sound interesting. Even better, the longest presentation is only 90 minutes and entry is FREE.
