Activities

Meetings

Our meetings are held regularly in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane; we usually have a speaker who gives a talk on a topic of Huguenot interest.

This is followed by afternoon tea and a chance for members to mingle, get to know each other, and exchange information.

Our meetings are open to everyone. See Upcoming Events (below) for details of time and place.

Social Events

A variety of dinners, lunches, picnics and other activities are held regularly in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to allow members to get to know each other.

Journal and Newsletter

We publish our journal, ‘Huguenot Times’ twice a year (May and November) to keep in contact with all our members, especially those who live outside the big cities.

It includes articles of Huguenot interest, including the text of speeches given at our meetings and shared information on family history.
We also publish ‘hugo’, an e-newsletter via the Internet in February and August.
