We Can Help

The HCSA aims to ensure that history, in all its diverse forms, is an important part of the cultural life of the people and communities of South Australia.


New Horizons

The HCSA is focused on introducing history to new generations of South Australians and exploring new ways of understanding and recording the State's past. We welcome your input and can be contacted via our contacts page.

Reach New Heights

A key objective of the History Council of South Australia is to promote research, writing and publication specifically in the area of South Australian history. To this end the HCSA is working closely with other institutions to develop these plans further.  Watch this space!
