Bendigo Regional Archives Centre (BRAC) is a boutique, grassroots service.  Our historical records date from 1856 through to the 1970s. These are the extensive public records created by the eight Local Government bodies which amalgamated in 1994 to become the City of Greater Bendigo.  These bodies are Bendigo (Sandhurst), Eaglehawk, Huntly, Marong, Strathfieldsaye, Heathcote, McIvor and Raywood.

BRAC also holds Court records created by the ten Bendigo and District Courts. These are from the various branches of the Court system and include Mining, Insolvency, Magistrates and Commonwealth Courts’ sittings.

BRAC aims to permanently preserve regional community records in their place of origin making them accessible to all researchers.

BRAC is located on the 1st Floor of the Bendigo Library, 251-259 Hargreaves Street, Bendigo.

Please order items before your visit.  You can contact BRAC to enquire about ordering.
