Published in 1895, the third volume covers the period 1796 to 1799.
 
The Historical Records of New South Wales are published with the object of affording the fullest information obtainable 
concerning the foundation, progress, and government of the mother colony of Australia. 

Published in 1895, the third volume covers the period 1796 to 1799. "The Records published in this Volume comprise the State Papers and other documents having reference to the administration of the Government of New South Wales by Captain John Hunter, R.N. As might be expected, Governor Hunter is the central figure. His despatches to the Home Government are numerous and lengthy, and form in themselves a fairly complete record of the public affairs of the Colony during his period of power". 

Also included are a narrative of the shipwreck of Captain Hamilton and the crew of the Sydney Cove, the voyage of the Norfolk through Bass Strait, and the exploration of the interior.
Spirituous liquors, having found their way into the colony in considerable quantities, occasion much idleness amongst many of the settlers; but I must confess have nevertheless some advantages. Much work will be done by labourers, artificers, and others for a small reward in this article, and (without any injury to health) which money could not purchase. [Jno. Hunter 1796]
