Welcome to the Royal Societies of Australia website


The Royal Societies of Australia (RSA) is a national organisation which represents and advocates for the efforts and joint views of Australia's Royal Societies, some of the oldest learned societies in the Southern Hemisphere. The RSA provides a framework for coordinating nationally focussed events and representation across Australia.


It facilitates the creation of a single voice for its member societies thereby allowing them to present their collective views to the federal government and its agencies, to business and to the community nationally.
