The Jane Austen Society of Australia is a member-based association founded in 1989 to bring together lovers and admirers of Jane Austen in this part of the world. We number academics and scholars amongst our members, but we are mostly enthusiastic amateurs who meet to discuss the genius of Austen and to explore the era that gave rise to her.

Jane Austen imageAlthough based in Sydney, we have members in all states of Australia and overseas, and we warmly welcome visitors to our events.

We produce regular publications, have a member’s library, and sell Austen-inspired items through our Regency Fair stall at meetings.
