National Archives of Australia

East Victoria Park, Western Australia

The National Archives of Australia was originally located in East Victoria Park. The 11,033sqm property was sold in July 2018 for a reported $7 million. It lies abandoned, housing the occasional squatter, used as a studio for local street graffers and explored by recreational urbexers.

It is contaminated with an abundance of asbestos, white mould and microbial hazards as well as being typically classed as a dangerous environment with holes in the flooring, trashed rooms, discarded needles etc.

A small fire broke out on 17 May of this year and whether or not this hastened the demolition of this site is unknown but demolition was completed on 11 September 2020.
