All are welcome

The Society’s bicentennial year is culminating in a black-tie gala dinner on 24 June 2022 when we gather to celebrate the achievements of the Society over 200 years.

The dinner is being held in the Great Hall, The University of Sydney—the location of our 100th Anniversary Dinner—with pre-dinner drinks in the University’s Chau Chak Wing Museum. Society-related objects from the Museum’s collections will be on display evoking the spirit of the Society’s Conversaziones, highlights of Sydney’s social calendar in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Over our 200 years we have attracted many great minds who have drawn on complex bodies of knowledge from different disciplines to open minds, entertain, encourage debate and spark new and unexpected ways of thinking. We are delighted that Dr Alan Finkel AC, neuroscientist, inventor, researcher, entrepreneur, educator, policy advisor, and philanthropist will present the after-dinner address: ‘All aboard – choose your flight to the future’.
