The Dawn and New Dawn were magazines published between 1952-1975 by the New South Wales Aborigines
Welfare Board, with the aim of providing interesting information and an exchange of news and views. The Dawn
and New Dawn were also a way for people to keep in contact. Today the magazines are a valuable source of family
history information as they include details of births, deaths, marriages and baptisms, as well as hundreds of
photographs.

The Dawn and New Dawn contain articles about the conditions and activities on reserves, stations, homes and
schools throughout New South Wales. During their time of publication the magazines were also used to report the
work of the Aboriginal Welfare Board.
