The Archives Office is set up under the Archives Act to provide a formal and transparent framework for recordkeeping across State and local government organisations and regulate the retention and disposal of their records; provide facilities for the preservation of the State's archives, including records of non-government organisations and individuals, and provide facilities and services to enable public access to the State's archives.
Holding on to our history - that's what the National Archives of Australia does. We care for valuable Commonwealth government records and make them available for present and future generations to use. Our recordkeeping standards help government to account to the public, ensuring that evidence is available to support people's rights and entitlements and that future generations will have a meaningful record of the past.
