New fees for services to the public

From Tuesday 4 October 2016 the cost to order digital copies of records will increase. As part of the move to provide more of our services online, these price changes will enable the cost-recovery of digitisation and ensure greater digital access to the collection in the future.

More than 42 million pages of records are now available online with new content added each week. Access to records already digitised and published online will continue free of charge. Original records will also continue to be available through our reading rooms in each capital city, where you can use your digital camera or tablet to photograph records for free.

These new charges ensure the National Archives can continue its stewardship of this remarkable collection of government records on behalf of the Australian public.
