What we have

We hold permanent records of enduring historical value for the Queensland Government and local governments.

At Queensland State Archives (QSA) you can find records created by Queensland agencies, including:

  • government departments
  • councils
  • universities
  • statutory authorities
  • boards.

Records can include:

  • letters
  • reports
  • telegrams
  • photographs
  • maps
  • architectural drawings.

Deed polls

We hold deed polls (change-of-name records) that were registered with the Queensland Supreme Court before 1 February 2004.

What’s online

Only a small amount of the collection is available for viewing online.

You will most likely need to order a copy of the record you are interested in or visit us in person at Runcorn. You can also view some of the photographs from our collection on Flickr.

Other archives

A lot of historical information can be found and accessed with other organisations.
