Welcome to the Bendigo Regional Archives Centre

A repository and research centre for North Central and Western Victorian history




New Collection Guide Available For Researchers

The recently transferred Bendigo Health collection is huge and diverse, so BRAC have developed an in-depth Guide to help you navigate the various series by explaining what the purpose of each was and what sort of information might be included - you can download it HERE. A History Month talk that explores what the collection has to offer is coming up in OCTOBER.

Online Records & Indexes Update

Our listing of online resources has been updated with two new indexes, updates to the Bendigo Receiving Ward Patient Records Index to extend to 1941, and links to records across the BRAC catchment area - find them all HERE

Interested in Land Titles?

While BRAC can help researching the history of local properties (using parish plans, rate books and permit registers), we do not hold information on titles - documents and records around land ownership, transfer, encumbrances etc are held by LandData, and much of it can be accessed online (sometimes with a fee). Find out more HERE
