The national collection is how this country tells its story.

Australian Parliament House

Australian War Memorial

National Film and Sound Archive of Australia

National Gallery of Australia

National Library of Australia

National Museum of Australia

National Portrait Gallery

It is the art at Parliament House and the National Gallery of Australia, and the faces at the National Portrait Gallery. It is the history held by the National Film and Sound Archive and the poignant records of the Australian War Memorial. It is the objects at the National Museum of Australia and the documents in the National Library of Australia.

This project is a celebration of the cultural holdings of Australia. It is about unearthing, object by object, the vast collection held in Canberra on Australia’s behalf.
