Researching the State's archival collection can be a rewarding research journey. We offer occasional tours and other events throughout the year to help you navigate archival research and find the records you're looking for. If there are no events scheduled below please check back. 


Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples should be aware the collection and website may contain images, voices and names of deceased persons.

Material in the Public Record Office Victoria archival collection contains words and descriptions that reflect attitudes and government policies at different times which may be insensitive and upsetting.

PROV provides advice to researchers wishing to access, publish or re-use records about Aboriginal Peoples.
