Often cloaked in myth, the stories of spies are sometimes stranger than fiction.
For the first time at the National Archives, Spy: Espionage in Australia reveals the personal experiences of secret agents and the curious history of espionage and counter-espionage in Australia, from Federation through to the present day.
See genuine spy equipment, surveillance images and candid interviews with ASIO officers. Play the part of a secret agent in the interactive family trail. Test your skills at codebreaking and reading invisible ink.
Spy brings the stories of spies out of the shadows and into the light.
Exhibition development and national tour supported by the Australian Government Visions of Australia, National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program, and Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO).
