Australia (and the rest of the world), is very fortunate to have free access to Trove - a website of the National Library of Australia. Trove contains many digitised newspapers, some from all the Australian States and Territories up to 1954. While not every paper ever printed has been digitsed there is a wide selection. But the Trove site is not just newspapers but also has Picture Australia, theses, maps, and now the New South Wales and Commonwealth Government Gazettes. There are a number of ways to make your search more directed and ways to organise your research using the site.
