The Australian Children's Folklore Collection has immense historic and research significance as the pre-eminent collection of children's folklore in Australia, and possibly the biggest in the world. A collection of 13 collections documenting Australian childhood culture from an ethnographic perspective, it incorporates records in text, image, sound and 3D formats. It represents dominant, Indigenous and immigrant cultures, spanning 140 years, with specialised material from the 1950s and 1970s-80s.
