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.

Our second JASA meeting for 2017 will be held this Saturday, 22nd April with Judy Stove presenting, “Elizabeth Jenkins: Jane Austen’s First Scholarly Biographer”.
Judy is a JASA member, academic and author of The Missing Monument Murders. Her talk focuses on English novelist and biographer Elizabeth Jenkins, author of the first non-family biography of Jane Austen (1938) and a foundation member of the UK’s Jane Austen Society in 1940. If you haven't been to a meeting or haven't been in a while, do join us as our meetings are always interesting and entertaining. It's always fun to catch up with others, talking and hearing about Jane Austen.
