Tasmanian Archives on the move: from Berriedale to the new Geilston Bay Repository

The Tasmanian Archives collection will be relocating from Berriedale to a new facility at Geilston Bay – the Geilston Bay Repository – from September to November 2022.

While we move there will be a period of time when records may not be available.


Have you seen the new mural at the Geilston Bay Repository?

Contemporary artist Josh Foley, based in Launceston, Tasmania, has recently made his artwork Waves of Time on the new archives building. Josh describes his work as relating to “a kind of ocean of space/time whereby we are mapping and co-ordinating our current perspective based upon all the data we choose to keep”.

The mural was commissioned as part of the Arts Tasmania and Tasmanian Government Art Site Scheme.


We are looking forward to working in our brand-new archive space!
