Banned

Banned Logo

The National Archives in Canberra has updated its café with a new display on banned books. Read about the secret history of Australian censorship as you sip your coffee.  You can also examine a censor's report or flip through a copy of a book or magazine once prohibited in Australia.

Visit the 'Banned' blog for more information about the prohibited publications on display, including links to digitised documents in the National Archives collection.

Open daily from 9am to 5pm (except Christmas and Good Friday)

Café hours: 9am to 3.45pm, Monday to Friday, closed public holidays.
