15 million collection items are on the move

Between November 2016 and 30 June 2017 the National Archives will be moving to a new, purpose-built preservation and storage facility in Canberra.

During this time access to the National Archive’s collection based in Canberra and some audiovisual material from Sydney will be disrupted. There will be periods when it is not possible for the Archives to provide access within the timeframes of its Service Charter. Access to Archives records online or those held in National Archives state and territory offices will not be affected.
