The RHSV has extended the exhibition of books entered in the Victorian Community History Awards until the end of next week, so if you'd like to browse through the many entries received, there is still time. Quite a few of these books are now available for sale in our bookshop, such as the CD All Aboard, and the book Ellen, A Woman of Spirit which tells the story of Ellen Kelly, mother of Ned.
Our library is open from 10 am to 4 pm, at 239 A'Beckett St, Melbourne (near Flagstaff Station).
The Royal Historical Society of Victoria was formed in 1909 and is a community organisation committed to collecting, researching and sharing an understanding of the history of Victoria.
With the support of a large number of volunteers, the RHSV provides a full program of activities (e.g. lectures, seminars, excursions and exhibitions) for the benefit of members and the general public. The Society publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, a reviewed journal and books of historical interest.
