Australian Division

In 1948 the Council of the Society decided that certain Branches should have greater autonomy of action to enable them to meet local conditions and on the 1st January 1949 Divisions of the Society were formed in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

The Australian Division is governed by a Council which meets three times a year. The Council comprises 10 elected Councillors and a representative from each of the 6 Australian Branches. The Branches are centred on the capital cities of each state and provide a comprehensive programme of lectures and visits. The Sydney Branch can trace its origins back to 1927 and was the first RAeS Branch formed outside of the UK. The Melbourne Branch was formed in 1953 and Adelaide Branch in 1956. Canberra Branch was approved in late 1962 and Queensland Branch in 1992. Proposals to form the Perth Branch were ratified in 2002.
