Historical gazettes online

I came across this little gem the other day, discovering that the State Library of Victoria now has historical copies of the Government Gazette online at

It contains Victorian gazettes from 1836 to 1997. (The current Victorian gazettes cover 1998 to now.)

Historical gazettes are still occasionally useful. I still remember the trouble I had many years ago finding a copy of the Shrine of Rememberance Regulations 1979 for a colleague. (I never did find them at the time). It turned out they were published in the Government Gazette, not as a statutory rule (and hence, not subject to the ten-year sunset clause that statutory rules are).
