Joining the RAHS means becoming part of a community that is interested in learning, researching and sharing information on Australian history (in particular New South Wales local and community history).

Our individual and organisational membership categories provide access to four editions of History Magazine, two online editions of the Journal of the Royal Australian Historical Society and the Society’s regular eNewsletter. You will also be able to log into our website’s members’ only area where you can download special members’ articles and other online resources. In addition, you can visit the RAHS library for free and get discounts to RAHS Events.

Library subscribers will also receive our magazine, journal and regular enewsletter, along with access to the members’ only area where they can download online versions of our quarterly and bi-annual publications.

You can read more about our different membership types and benefits, including our affiliated societies’ scheme available to eligible organisations. You are welcome to contact us if you have any queries.
