Tranby’s archives hold one of the biggest collections of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander records outside the State Library. The Tranby Archives preserve and provide access to the permanent records of Tranby. These are authentic records that document and illustrate the life and times of Tranby, its students, staff, activities and governance. The collection reflects the working life, achievements and celebrations of Tranby and Indigenous recent history since the 1950s.
The volunteer History Guide will research the vast history of Tranby, working alongside the Archiving Team to establish a timeline of important and historic events.
History guides will offer tours of Tranby, incorporating the rich history of Tranby and Indigenous history since its establishment in 1958 promoting Tranby to our many visitors during and beyond our 60th Birthday year.
