After providing a biographical sketch of John Tebbutt, Australia's foremost nineteenth century astronomer, this paper summarises the collection of Tebbutt archives in the Mitchell Library, Sydney, and discusses some individual record lost in detail. The `Tebbutt Collection' is an indispensable resource for those studying nineteenth and early twentieth century Australian astronomy, but it also throws light on the state of British, South African and New Zealand astronomy at this time.
