– Some historical material also from sister station in Shepparton. More recent material from across the state is digital and primarily held in Ballarat, which compiles bulletins for the different regions of Victoria (Ballarat, Bendigo, Gippsland, Shepparton, Mildura and Albury/Wodonga)

Generally access to researchers is not available as the archive is not organised for external use. There is no viewing equipment at WIN for film and some older formats of video tape.

WIN Victoria regularly sends material to the National Film and Sound Archive, which can be found in the Archive’s online catalogue.
