The core of this archive is held by the State Library of Victoria, thanks to the 1875 donation of the records of the Burke and Wills Expedition (MS13071) by the Royal Society of Victoria.  There are, however, many other important items held in other repositories in Australia and overseas.

This guide will direct you to the major holdings of Burke and Wills material in Victoria and beyond.
