Building Fiji through authentic and accessible archival records.

Our collection contains around a million documents dating from the early 1800’s to the present. These records constitute a large portion of the nation’s collective memory, and provide a bridge for citizens to reach back in time to find vital information for present day issues such as pension entitlements, family genealogies, and property cases.

What we do


National Archives of Fiji

The National Archives was established in 1954 as the Central Archives of Fiji and the Western Pacific High Commission after several decades of intermittent proposals from interested individuals. Less than a year after Fiji attained Independence the National Archives of Fiji formally came into being with an amendment of the Public Records Ordinance in July 1971.
