State Records of South Australia is the government archives of South Australia and holds a large part of the state's official documentary heritage. The archive commenced operating in South Australia in 1919, making State Records the oldest government archive in Australia.
We hold records covering almost every facet of state and local government administration within South Australia. Our records therefore provide valuable insight and knowledge about the lives of South Australians. The State Records collection holds many maps, plans, registers, films and photographs, in addition to thousands of documents dating from the earliest days of European settlement to recent times.
State Records is a business unit of the State Attorney-General's Department.
State Records comprises a Director and three operational teams (Information Governance, Archive and Operations and Improvement). Each team is headed by a Manager who is supported by various professional and administrative staff.
