Access Centres Temporarily Closed

COVID-19 Update

Please be advised that while the NFSA continues to operate, some of our services are inevitably affected by these unprecedented circumstances.

You can contact the Access team by emailing access [at] for all your NFSA collection access requirements or requests; our response time may vary depending on the content that is requested. We will do our best to get back to you within 5-10 working days.

Please also note that our NFSA offices in Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne, as well as our Access Centres in other capital cities, are not currently open to the public. The NFSA is taking this decision to help safeguard the health and safety of visitors and staff, as well as the broader community.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we adapt to the ongoing situation. Please let us know if you have any feedback or questions.
