The Historical Society of South Australia (HSSA) exists for the primary purposes of promoting interest in and the study of South Australian history.

Since its foundation in 1974 the Society has stimulated public awareness of our history and heritage through engagement in public debates, by a program of monthly lectures and regular field trips, and in publishing quarterly newsletters and our academically refereed annual journal.

We strive to appeal to a wide audience, both in terms of their historical interests and ages.

Details of the monthly lecture program and our field trips can be found on this website.

We look forward to welcoming visitors, and new and returning members at all of our events.

Geoffrey Bishop and Pamela Rajkowski Co- Presidents
