There are many film and sound titles relating to Australia’s South West in the NFSA collection. This includes historic footage of Perth, Fremantle, Rottnest Island, Bunbury, Augusta, Margaret River, Cape Leeuwin and Albany. Here is a sample of the collection dating from 1907 to 1972.
Throughout 2013 the NFSA is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Film Australia Collection, which preserves and provides access to the nation’s documentary record – our collective memory.
If you have any information about the people or places in these films, we would love to read your comments.
