The State Records Office is responsible for the State Archive Collection, the largest archival collection in Western Australia and one of the most important historical and cultural resources belonging to the people of this state.
We all benefit from the archives as the original records providing insight into our diverse heritage and history. They supply valuable information for historians, genealogists, scientists, planners, teachers, students and the community, and are an inspiration for writers, film makers and artists.
