The National Archives of Australia performs a critical role in preserving the nation’s memory.

On 1 July 2021, the Australian Government announced a funding boost to the National Archives of $67.7 million over 4 years in recognition of the significance of our collection to the lives of every Australian.

We are bolstered by this additional funding, as we have been by the swell of public and media support we have received to date. The funding will go toward accelerating the digitisation of our most at-risk records and provide access to more researchers, students and family historians, especially those living in regional Australia.

With a growing collection of over 40 million records, your ongoing support will enable the National Archives to keep the nation’s memory alive.

Your contributions will help preserve recordings of Indigenous languages and ceremonies, World War II records, ASIO surveillance footage, records of the Bounty mutineers and much more.
