If you are not sure what sort of information we might need, please email us.

Our fees

We will do a preliminary research check for you for FREE. This allows us to check we have relevant information in our collections before charging you.

Our research fee is $30.00 per hour.

Additional charges may apply:

Photocopying fees:

Black and white A4 + A3: 20 cents per page, double sided 40c

Colour A4: $1.50 per page, double-sided $3
Colour A3: $2.50 per page, double-sided $5

Important information

We'll contact you once we've done an initial check to let you know what we have and discuss our fees.

Please note that we can only search the collections held at The Treasury. There may be other institutions holding records relevant to your enquiry which you could pursue.    

Information we gather in the course of undertaking research on your behalf may be added to The Treasury’s collection if it is deemed potentially useful to other researchers.
