The Geographical Society of New South Wales is a professional society whose members are geography academics, teachers, practising geographers from both the public and private spheres, and other interested members of the public.

Encourage - Engage - Excite

The Society's mission is to encourage and promote geography in New South Wales and throughout Australia. The Society both engages and elevates geographical research, scholarship and education. The Society writes and encourages geographical submissions to appropriate authorities on environmental and social issues in Australia. The Society works to support geographical literacy, awareness and inspire enthusiasm for geography among the public in a globally connected world.
