Burnside Historical Society

Celebrating 35 years of Community History

A community based group that promotes interest in the history of the City of Burnside, a local government area in the eastern foothills of Adelaide, the capital of South Australia.

Established in 1980, the Society has a membership of around 150 and new members are most welcome.

General meetings, which feature an address from a visiting speaker, are free and are held at the Burnside Community Centre at 7.30pm on the third Monday of each month. Members of the public are welcome to attend any of the general meetings.

A quarterly Newsletter is published and a regional history tour is held every second year.

Half day or full day trips to points of historical interest are held each year.
