What we do

The Society provides a wide range of services and activities for members and the general public. These include:

Significant projects rely on receiving one-off government grants. We are grateful for project funding received through ACT government Heritage Grants and Commonwealth government Community Heritage Grants. Membership subscriptions, book sales and member donations go towards covering our ongoing operational costs of which office rent is by far the largest component.

A number of our current and former members have been recognised for their work through awards by the Federation of Australian Historical Societies. In recent years they have included:


Merit Awards

Many of our members have been recognised by the award of Australia Honours or inclusion in the Canberra Honour Walk.
