The Australiana Society is an incorporated association of diverse people devoted to collecting, studying, researching and preserving Australiana, defined as objects relating to Australia and its history and culture.
We publish Australiana, a quarterly all-colour 60 page magazine. Articles are authoritative and topical, and exceptional reference material for collectors and researchers. Practical articles include but are not limited to Australian art, design, furniture, ceramics, glass, jewellery, metalwork, coins, notes, medals, crafts, ephemera, architecture, history, historic houses, and conservation.
Our seminars, exhibition viewings and tour excursions were cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19.
We are actively planning events throught the nation in 2021. The Society is run entirely by volunteers. If you would like to get more involved contact the Secretary@australia.org.au
The Australiana Society has an annual grant of up to $5,000 for institutions to assist with the acquisition of an object of Australiana that would be placed on public display.

We encourage you to submit contributions on an aspect of Australiana for our magazine. Contributions are to be well illustrated and include text, pictures and captions preferably in electronic form. We do not pay for contributions. Our Style guide is available here.
