Spy: Espionage in Australia

Exhibition and Shows

29 Nov 2019 to 27 Apr 2020

Often cloaked in myth, the stories of spies are sometimes stranger than fiction. For the first time at the National Archives, Spy: espionage in Australia reveals the personal experiences of secret agents and the curious history of espionage and counter-espionage in Australia, from Federation through to the present day.

See genuine spy equipment, surveillance images and candid interviews with ASIO officers. Play the part of a secret agent in the interactive family trail. Test your skills at codebreaking and reading invisible ink.

Developed in partnership with ASIO, Spy brings the stories of spies out of the shadows and into the light.
