RHSQ members and guests at the 2022 Queensland Day dinner

Apply to become a member


The Royal Historical Society of Queensland invites you to make an application to become a member of the Society. Applications by new members are considered at the RHSQ Council meetings on the second Thursday of each month.

Your membership benefits include:

  • a quarterly copy of the Queensland History Journal delivered electronically
  • a monthly members’ Bulletin delivered electronically February to December
  • free entry to the Commissariat Store Museum
  • discounted members rates at most Society events and functions
  • complimentary research assistance in the Welsby Library (by appointment only)

Your membership supports The Royal Historical Society of Queensland in our work to preserve, publish, and promote Queensland’s history. Members are invited to take an active interest in the Society through assisting in the many different areas of our operations.

The Society values your support and would especially value donations to help promote history in the community. Donations to the Library and Museum Fund of $2 or more are eligible tax deductions. Donations to the general funds from members not seeking a tax deduction are especially valuable in keeping your Society operating.


The RHSQ Membership year runs from July 1 to June 30 each year. However, if you join between March and June, your membership application will include the following membership year.

Membership is non-refundable.
