The oldest learned society in the Southern Hemisphere

The Society traces its origin to the Philosophical Society of Australasia, founded in Sydney in 1821.

Our purpose is to advance knowledge through “... the encouragement of studies and investigations in Science, Art, Literature and Philosophy”.

Membership of the Royal Society of New South Wales is open to anyone interested in Science, Art, Literature or Philosophy and their relationships.


The Society's annual RSNSW and Four Academies Forum took place on 29 November, hosted by His Excellency the Governor of New South Wales at Government House.  The abstracts of the presentations can be accessed here.
