Special Note re COVID-19 Impact

The activities described below are currently affected by the COVID-19 restrictions. We have had no meetings/presentations or social events since February, but will be having an online meeting/presentation using Zoom technology on 8th August (see details elsewhere). We have been forwarding monthly reprinted articles from past issues of Huguenot Times to members. The Committee continues to meet using Zoom technology.


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

Various activities are held regularly including dinners, lunches and picnics in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane so that  members can 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.
