Seeing is believing with documents from the past
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.

Tuesday, 10th of May from 10am to 11:30am

Tuesday, 21st of June from 10am to 11am

Tuesday, 16th of August from 10am to 11am

There is more detailed information about each seminar on the website here.

The National Archives Queensland Office is located at 16 Corporate Drive,
Cannon Hill. Free onsite car parking is available and is serviced by bus route 227, which stops on the Wynnum Road 'archives' stop. Other bus routes terminate at Cannon Hill Plaza, a 600-metre walk. Cannon Hill train station, on the Cleveland Line, is a 500-metre walk.

If you have an interest in learning more about Queensland, then this is the place to visit.

This would be fascinating to understand our past and understand how to navigate through the collection.
