Home

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.

'Jane Austen's England' is the first and only travel guide in England that is totally devoted to exploring locations with a connection to Jane Austen. Unfortunately it is only available in Dutch and help via donations is the only way it can be translated into English. With this Kickstarter campaign you can help make it possible. Please have a look at the link below and if you can assist in any way, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you to Chris Clark who provided a fascinating talk for our final JASA meeting for 2016. Chris, who is currently undertaking a PhD in English Literature on the topic, 'Jane Austen: Nature, Landscape and the Garden', provided an interesting talk entitled, 'Henry's Mythology of Perfection: The troublesome biographical Notice'. Thank you also to all of our members who came to this meeting and to the others who attended throughout 2016. Please feel free to make any comments about the talk and indeed provide any feedback on our JASA meetings. We look forward to providing you further fascinating talks in 2017.
