ANZ Group Archive is the Melbourne-based repository for ANZ's archives; a separate repository is also based in Wellington, New Zealand. ANZ's archives are recognised as a collection of international significance providing information on the economic, social, political, family and local history of Australia and New Zealand spanning the last 170 years.

The collection focus is restricted to the records of the administration of ANZ and its predecessors and does not include customer records. The collection is predominantly paper-based and comprises minutes, reports, correspondence, legal documents, accounting records, personnel records, photographs, architects' drawings, audio-visual recordings and other artefacts.

A limited research service is provided to the public for minor historical enquiries. Access to the archive is granted on discretion for major or post-graduate research; researchers are required to sign an access agreement.
