Often cloaked in myth, the stories of spies are sometimes stranger than fiction. Spy: Espionage in Australia reveals the personal experiences of secret agents and the curious history of espionage and counter-espionage in Australia, from the 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 trial. Test your skills at codebreaking and reading invisible ink. Spy brings the stories of spies out of the shadows and into the light. A national touring exhibition developed and presented by the National Archives of Australia. Learn more about the exhibition and Spy Trails by visiting the website.
