YHA recently won an award in the film category at the Museums Australasia Multimedia & Publication Design Awards (MAPDA) for the Archaeology at The Big Dig documentary which tells the story of the site that Sydney Harbour YHA is located on.

This unique historic site dates to the early European settlement days of the Australian colony, and the documentary about it, which premiered on SBS, was selected for this prestigious award at a gala event held in Canberra on 9 June 2021.
