Bestanden

The Hobart office holds records similar to other offices – immigration case files, alien registration documentation, inwards and outwards passenger lists, lighthouse logbooks, army pay records, and large-format architectural drawings of Commonwealth buildings in Tasmania. There are collections special to Tasmania, notably records created by the Australian Antarctic Division and the Bureau of Meteorology.

Antarctic records of particular interest include:


  • photographs
  • hydrographic charts and maps
  • the personal collection of Captain John King Davis, Second-in-Command of Douglas Mawson's 1911-1914 expedition
  • Antarctic voyage and station reports and log books; and records about husky dogs employed on Antarctic expeditions.

The meteorological records include a series of tidal readings and meteorological data recorded between 1837-1977 at Port Arthur by Thomas Lampiere, the Deputy Assistant Commissary General at the Port Arthur penal settlement.
