The Estonian Archives in Australia (EAA) was established by the Council of Estonian Societies in Australia on the 5th of January, 1952. The aims of the EAA include: to collect material relating to the lives and activities of Estonians in Australia; to collect material in the Estonian language from all over the world; to collect material by Estonians or about Estonia in other languages; to provide public access to the collections. A portion of the records of the EAA date back to the "first fleeters" of Estonians who came to Australia in the late 1880s, as well as those of the second wave immigration in the 1920s, but the bulk of the material relates to the post World War II immigration.

Collection transferred to the IHRC from the Estonian Archives in the U.S.A. (EAU) in 2003-2005. It was processed as part of a collaborative project between the Estonian Archives in the USA (Lakewood, New Jersey), the National Archives of Estonia (NAE), and the IHRC in March 2010. Margit Laanemets and Kristel Tammik of the National Archives in Tallinn, Estonia, worked with IHRC staff on the project.
