Ten sound recordings with cultural, historical and aesthetic significance were added to Sounds of Australia for 2012. 

They go right 'to the top', ranging from comedy to field reporting to album masterpieces. This collection contains all ten inductees, with multiple clips from three of them: a Barry Humphries 'B' side featuring Edna Everage, additional radio serials from Grace Gibson Productions and more Sydney recordings from The Hawaiian Entertainers.

Established in 2007, Sounds of Australia is the NFSA’s selection of sound recordings which inform or reflect life in Australia. Each year, the Australian public nominates new sounds to be added with final selections determined by a panel of industry experts.
