Benefits of Membership

Each year, you will receive the Society Newsletters and a copy of the annual John McDouall Stuart Memorial Address.

The Newsletters have current notices of forthcoming events and they contain well researched articles of not just Stuart, his Companions and their journeys, but all manner of related aspects. From horses, to well sinking, to grand mansions, to space travel and to current Society activities, it’s all found in the Newsletters.

The annual Stuart Memorial Address is one of the Society’s highlights. The address examines, in depth, a facet of Stuart, the Companions, or matters connected with the explorations. Topics range from an individual’s life stories, to Morse code and telegraphs, to travel, to aboriginal encounters, to books and to travel articles. The annual address is published and sent to members.

The opportunity to engage on a personal level with other members. The social and networking aspect of membership is sometimes cited as the strongest benefit of  joining.

Access to activities limited to members only field trips, restoration projects, talks, social events, and Society events. As an example, see ‘Sketching with Stuart’ in the news section of this website. This book launch was a members only cocktail party hosted in the sumptuous Queen Adelaide Room of the Adelaide Town Hall.

Access to the Society’s records-very valuable for research purposes.

First access to publications and Society events.

Provision of ongoing support, which enables the Society to continue to recognise and celebrate Stuart, his companions, their activities and their lives.

Strong linkages with kindred organisations.
