Information about the project
Australian Heritage Photo Library (AHPL)
The Australian Heritage Photographic Library (AHPL) maintains a collection of more than 120,000 images. This collection is an outstanding source of information about Australia's natural and cultural heritage places. These images illustrate the story of who we are and how this land has taken shape and given Australia its very particular identity. The photos show that our heritage is far more than just outstanding icons like the Great Barrier Reef and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It also consists of often-unsung places such as the Bonegilla migrant camp, Country Women's Association halls, Aboriginal missions and bushland remnants, which, added together, make this country unique.
