University of New England & Regional Archives

As a part of the University of New England, UNERA exists for the benefit of the wider community, both national and international. The holdings include NSW Government records as well as records of individuals, businesses, pastoral properties and community organisations which have helped to shape this region.


Over 1,500 series of letters, ledgers, diaries, photographs, maps and plans make up the regional holdings. Some of the earliest material dates back as far as the 1600s, but the majority comes from the century between 1850 and 1950. UNERA is also a regional repository for the State Records Authority of New South Wales (State Records). In this capacity, the UNERA collects the NSW Local Government, Lands, Court House, Mining and Police records from the region.
