THE FEDERATION OF AUSTRALIAN HISTORICAL SOCIETIES

The peak body representing the interests of historical societies throughout Australia. The organisation encourages the study and publication of Australian history, the preservation, interpretation and promotion of moveable and built heritage, and public access to historical information and heritage collections. 

It promotes communication and mutual assistance within the historical society movement and provides a forum for the exchange of ideas on historical matters. Where appropriate, it lobbies federal, state and local governments on issues of concern to historical societies and assists their work in a variety of other ways.

The Federation is a member of the National Cultural Heritage Forum and the Regional Cultural Alliance.
