Opportunities to make personal contact and share information, research and knowledge with other collectors, dealers, researchers and auctioneers. Get valuable inside tips and learn from other's experience and mistakes!

Commitment

Subscriptions may be tax deductible

Your subscription may be a tax deductible if you are a dealer or auctioneer - if collecting, researching or preservation of Australiana is relevant to your business or work, for instance as a curator you are collecting Australiana as part of your superannuation fund.
