The Federation of Australian Historical
Societies Inc. is the peak body representing the interests of
historical societies throughout Australia. The organisation encourages
the study and publication of Australian history, the preservation,
interpretation and promotion of moveable and built heritage, and public
access to historical information and heritage collections.
It promotes communication and mutual
assistance within the historical society movement and provides a forum
for the exchange of ideas on historical matters. Where appropriate, it
lobbies federal, state and local governments on issues of concern to
historical societies and assists their work in a variety of other ways.
The Federation is a member of the National
Cultural Heritage Forum and the Regional Cultural Alliance.
