The treasures are in your classroom
Our vast collections include extraordinary items that tell the story of Australia's culture and history. Teachers and students now have access to these treasures in the National Library Digital Classroom. Aligned to the Australian Curriculum, the website offers lesson outlines, videos and activies that engage students, encouraging them to analyse sources, develop the skills to be history detectives and draw their own conclusions about Australia's story.
If you are looking for Treasure Explorer, it has been archived in the National Library's Australian Government Web Archive. As this is no longer a live website, some of the original functionality is not available.
