Overview

The Britain-Australia Society exists to promote and maintain the rich relationship between Australia and the United Kingdom. Our members are individuals and corporations who are aligned with and support that objective. We do this by celebrating our shared history and furthering our longstanding cultural, educational, sporting and inter-governmental links. Our headquarters are in Australia House (High Commission of Australia) in London and we have branches in seven regions across the United Kingdom (Cambridge, Long Melford, Norwich, Spalding, Portsmouth, Leicester and Dorchester). The Britain-Australia Society works to connect its members across the United Kingdom through an active and varied events programme ranging from high-level networking opportunities in sought after locations, to briefings by leading experts on topical issues such as trade and defence policy. With exclusive access to many prestigious events and venues, and a diverse membership including some of the leading figures in Anglo-Australian relations, the Society is the organisation for individuals and companies who want to support the wide-ranging and modern relationship between the UK and Australia. The aims of the Britain-Australia Society are to:

  • Strengthen existing friendship between the United Kingdom and Australia
  • Promote educational exchanges
  • Arrange social events for members
  • Provide a point of contact for Australians visiting the United Kingdom
  • Maintain links with Australia
  • Be a forum for personal and professional development of talented youth
The Society grants an occasional Britain-Australia Society Award to recognise a person who has demonstrated a long-term contribution to relations between the United Kingdom and Australia. As a non-commercial society, administration and events are funded by membership subscriptions, management fees and corporate sponsors, including Australian Government agencies and businesses and organisations with an Australian interest in the United Kingdom or a British interest in Australia.
