“See the beautiful, the rare and the unexpected at the National Library of Australia on the shores of Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin.”

The ever-changing Treasures Gallery gives you free access to some of Australia's most moving stories. Make the journey and be intrigued, surprised, challenged and amazed by the stories these unique treasures tell. Highlights include material from the 1967 referendum and the campaign for Indigenous rights, as well as intriguing items from the life of poet Henry Lawson, including his fob watch and two of his pens.

Enjoy unparalleled access to Australia's documentary heritage including books, serials, maps, newspapers, music and ephemera.

Take in an exhibition, join a tour, browse the bookshop, or enjoy a bite to eat at Bookplate café, taking in the lake-side views.
