The Australiana Society is an incorporated association of collectors, researchers, dealers and auctioneers devoted to collecting, studying and preserving Australiana: art, decorative arts, antiques, historic items, collectables, buildings and sites, and portable heritage made in, or relating to, Australia.
We publish Australiana, a quarterly all-colour magazine (40 pages, except for special bumper issues) presenting authoritative, topical, and practical articles on Australian art, design, furniture, ceramics, glass, jewellery, metalwork, coins, notes, medals, crafts, ephemera, architecture, history, historic houses, conservation, etc.
We organise talks, exhibition viewings, excursions, seminars and other events in Sydney and elsewhere. The Society is run entirely by volunteers.
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.
