UNE Heritage Centre re-opens

Published on Wednesday 04 October 2023

We were delighted to attend a ceremony to mark the re-opening of the University of New England (UNE) and Regional Archives, also known as UNE Heritage Centre, to members of the public on 28 September 2023.

UNE and Regional Archives and Heritage Centre is one of seven NSW Regional Archives Centres that provide access to State archives of regional significance and to copies of key State archives.

Part of an important network – extending from Armidale to Wagga, Broken Hill, Wingecarribee, Wollongong and Newcastle – the Regional Archives Centres give physical context to regional State archives by keeping them within the communities where they were created and gives those communities ready access to their archives.

The UNE and Regional Archives is operated by UNE and holds records and artefacts that cover the entire New England North West, as far north as the Queensland border, including family history records, regional records, NSW archives, and a large collection of photographs, maps and other artefacts.

The State archives held there cover a wide range of subjects including education, local government, land and law and order. This collection offers a trove of information that is available for researchers, students, policy makers, family historians and the all-round curious to mine.

It’s wonderful to see the results of the vision and hard work of everyone who has contributed to the process of re-opening the UNE Archives and Heritage Centre.
