Each month from February to November the Society meets to hear intriguing stories and colourful accounts of our state’s lively past.

Meetings are held in the Burnside City Uniting Church, 384 Portrush Road, Tusmore. Enter via Fisher street. Visitors are always welcome but are asked for a $5 donation.

The first meeting for 2021 will be on Friday 5 February at 7.30pm. 

Carolyn Spooner will explore the life of the little-known South Australian, Sir Hubert Wilkins, polar explorer, and share some of the ‘finds’ in the State Library archives.

The full program for 2021 can be found here.

For your interest, the first program for the Historical Society can be found below.
