We’ve been hard at work creating a new website to make it easier for us to share our collection. Our new site has a fresh design and now works better on all your devices. Navigation has been simplified with a clean menu of core options at the top, and more detail at the bottom. There are also more collection highlights to see than ever before.

Binge-watch our collection

We have more than 50 Curated Collections and we’ll keep adding more. You can spend hours exploring collections such as vintage cats, before they were famous (featuring Russell Crowe, Kylie, Nicole Kidman, Jacki Weaver and more celebrities), time capsules of Australia’s capital cities, some of the world’s earliest films (Lumière) and news footage (newsreels). Of course, some of Australia's favourite summer activities are also included: the beach, surfing, and cricket!


Experience the exhibitions

If you’re in for the full experience, put your feet up and navigate through our Online Exhibitions. We're launching the website with a brand new Storm Boy exhibition, to celebrate its 40th anniversary. It features behind-the-scenes content, as well as a new interview with 'Storm Boy' himself, Greg Rowe, speaking from his home in Toronto.

You can also enjoy the new look for Muriel's Wedding and Johnny O'Keefe. There will be more added soon!


We look forward to hearing from you. Your feedback (suggestions, complaints and, why not, compliments) will help us do more to share the collection. Send us an email to online@nfsa.gov.au, or contact us through our social media channels.

In the meantime, let this video show you around our site:
