About the Aquarian Archive

This web site was made possible through a generous Library Development Grant from State Library NSW under the title Digitising Lismore Local History Records Aquarian Archive and Council Minutes.
The Original Archive consists of several separate collections:

  • The Peter Hamilton collection concerning the New Settlers movement in the area
  • The North East Forests Archive, being the records of conservation groups and environmental campaigns in northern NSW since the Terania Creek campaign of 1979
  • The Benny Zable collection of placards, fabrics and banners
  • The Graham Irvine collection of audio tapes and documentaries
  • The General collection including documents, films, videos, maps and a collection of posters

This collection is a subset of these collections.

This is a community archive and was digitised with the support of the Richmond Tweed Regional Library and Lismore City Council.
