Old collection search

You might prefer to use our old collection search until we have completed the new advanced search.


Please email webprojects@awm.gov.au with any feedback you have on this new search system.


While we make every reasonable effort to ensure the accuracy of information, some of the content on this collection database may contain inaccuracies or errors. Many captions reflect either the verbatim captions supplied by the original photographer or cinematographer, or information supplied at the time of donation.

Members of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are advised that this site contains names, images and moving images of deceased people.

The database may also include historically and culturally sensitive images and moving images, sound recordings, words, terms or descriptions; such material does not reflect the Memorial's viewpoint, but rather the social attitudes and circumstances of the period or place in which it was created.

If you have any relevant information regarding photograph captions, contact the Photographs Duty Curator at photographs@awm.gov.au
