The first South Australian Archive was established in 1919 to collect and preserve the archival records of the South Australian state government.

The State Records of South Australia archival collection includes many maps, plans, registers, films and photographs, in addition to thousands of documents dating from the earliest days of European settlement to recent times.

The archive holds records covering almost every facet of state and local government administration within South Australia. The records therefore provide valuable insight and knowledge about the lives of South Australians.
