The Government Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. They were published by the government as a means of communication to officials and the general public and therefore contain information that is of great use in establishing an image of Australia and its people in the past.

The New South Wales Government Gazette of 1857 contains:
 - appointees to government positions
 - appointments of Magistrates and Justices of the Peace
 - court cases
 - convicts gaining (and being deprived of) Tickets of Leave
 - convicts granted Free Pardons and Conditional Pardons including the terms of the pardon
 - dissolution of business partnerships
 - insolvents
 - land for sale
 - licenses for auctioneers, timber, spirit merchants, brewers, and notices for publicans, confectioners, hawkers & pedlars licensing meetings
 - medical witnesses at coroner’s inquests and inquiries held before Justices of the Peace
 - police appointments
 - probate and letters of administration announcements
 - ship's deserters
 - successful tenderers for runs
 - unclaimed letters
 - and much more

A particular feature of the 1857 gazette is an 80 page report on the census held on 1 March 1856.
