The National Archives, South Australia State Office, Adelaide office holds a small but diverse collection ranging from nineteenth century colonial records inherited by the Commonwealth to substantial holdings on immigration and defence in the twentieth century.

Of particular interest are the Defence Science and Technology Organisation records and material relating to railways and internment in South Australia.

The Defence Science and Technology Organisation records include files, slides and plans of the Woomera testing site. This collection also includes the human side of the missile testing in South Australia with the Gibber Gabber newsletter, and Bulldust news sheet produced by staff involved in atomic bomb testing.

The railway collection contains files, plans, and photographs, captures the broad history of mainland rail – Australian National as well as Central Australian Railways, Northern Australian Railway and the Trans Australian Railway – reflecting South Australia’s central role in the rail industry.

The records of the Loveday internment camp document security service aspects of individuals’ internment. They include personal particulars, arrangements for appeal and release, security service, tribunal notes and mail censorship material.
