An extraordinarily valuable resource, where many Kytherian-Australian documents and records are kept.
It would be interesting to undertake a systematic project to uncover this plethora of Kytherian information.

"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.
The records in our collection trace the events and decisions that shaped the nation. We hold the papers of Governors-General, Prime Ministers and Ministers. We have Cabinet documents, Royal Commission files and departmental records on defence, immigration, security and intelligence, naturalisation, and many other issues involving the federal government.
The main focus of our collection is records created since the formation of the Commonwealth of Australia in 1901. We also have some nineteenth-century records relating to functions that were transferred by the colonies to the Commonwealth government, including shipping and post offices.
While most records in the collection are files, we also have significant holdings of photographs, posters, maps, architectural drawings, films, playscripts, musical scores and sound recordings.
This vast collection is a rich resource for the study of Australian history, Australian society and the Australian people and is accessible to all. We welcome enquiries, and visitors to our reading rooms, and provide a range of databases, guides and leaflets to assist.
Our head office is located in Canberra and we have offices in each State capital and in Darwin. Our collection is dispersed in these offices across Australia. In addition to caring for our collection, we develop and tour exhibitions, publish books and guides to our collection and deliver educational programs.
Recordkeeping standards and advice
Australian Government agency staff and other recordkeeping professionals are valuable partners for the Archives in ensuring that all Australians can use Commonwealth records. Many records are now created in electronic forms that are harder to preserve and keep accessible over time. It is important to build systems that ensure valuable records survive. The Archives assists agencies by developing policies, standards, guidelines and providing training and advice about modern recordkeeping".
