Our annual accounts are submitted to the Department of Fair Trading. Members liability is limited to their subscription.
The Australiana Society is listed on the Australian Government's Register of Cultural Organisations as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and donations to the Society are tax-deductible. The Australian Taxation Office recognises the Society as a tax-exempt charity.
The Australiana Society is an independent association. For information on the completely separate company The Australiana Fund, which furnishes Government properties, visit The Australiana Fund.
Membership provides members with four issues of Australiana annually, and invitations to Society meetings and events. Visitors are welcome to attend general meetings, usually an illustrated talk.
Excursions and tours of collections, exhibitions and workshop are Members-only, with household membership covering two attendees.
Tours have occurred in NSW, Tasmania, Victoria, the ACT, South Australia and Queensland.
Our membership list is private and we do not reveal members' details.
A key benefit of membership is the informal network of contacts that you can establish with other collectors, curators and dealers.
