The online archives catalogue provides access to over 1 million items about the City of Sydney and the local area. Access documents, photographs, maps and plans from as early as 1842.

City Archivist Janet Villata will introduce you to the City Archives and explains how to search and browse the online catalogue. Janet will also highlight some of the fascinating items you can discover in the archives of the oldest municipal council in NSW.
