The National Library may not hold aerial photography for your area and/or time period of interest.

If this is the case, you may be able to access aerial photography from more localised sources. Some options to explore include:

  • Your state library
  • The government department responsible for lands in your state (for example, in New South Wales - Spatial Services)
  • Your local council, or
  • Photomapping Services, a commercial enterprise that holds aerial photography dating from 1930.
