Our National Office is in London and is supplemented by an extensive branch network across the country, which helps to spread the profile of the Society and offer a strong network countrywide.

The branches host a regular programme of events, including commemorating important occasions such as ANZAC Day and remembering great historical figures like Admiral Arthur Phillip and Matthew Flinders.

The Britain-Australia Society was delighted to host the Prime Minister of Australia, The Hon. Malcolm Turnbull MP, at our VIP reception in the salubrious surrounds of the Blenheim Saloon of Marlborough House. The PM was in very high demand post-G20 and we are most appreciative that he afforded us his precious time.

Mr Turnbull emphasised that the shared experience and understanding between our two countries has never been more of a potential asset than today and that he appreciates the work done by both the Britain-Australia Society and the Royal Commonwealth Society to strengthen and promote this. Post-Brexit the Commonwealth as a whole presents an opportunity for Britain and Australia is also ready to take advantage of that conduit.

Also present at the event were Baroness Scotland, Secretary General of the Commonwealth, and Lord Howell, President of the Royal Commonwealth Society, both of whom echoed the praise for the good work of the Britain-Australia Society and highlighted the potential role of the Commonwealth. HE The Hon. Alexander Downer AM, High Commissioner for Australia was accompanying Mr Turnbull. At an event the following week Mr Downer stressed that the Prime Minister reiterated in the car on the way to his next event how important and valuable he sees the bilateral relationship.
