There are many stories behind the more than 40 million items in the National Archives' collection.
Each year we select treasured items from our collection to showcase in our annual magazine.
In the past we've featured Harold Holt's briefcase, letters and files sharing unusual and moving stories about Australians and beautiful images capturing our history, our places and people.
Dive into the weird, wonderful and poignant stories behind our collection.
The NAA Magazine is free and is available in hard copy at a National Archives research centre. Organisations and community groups can also order copies in bulk for events.
