Where we hold our meetings

For those in Melbourne

The main bulk of members reside in and around Melbourne where monthly meetings are now held in the Carringbush room of the Retreat Hotel, 226 Nicholson Street, Abbotsford, on the fourth Wednesday of each month (except December). Meals (which are available as not compulsory) begin at 6.00 pm and the meeting at 7.30 pm. If time for meals does not permit then members and guests also have the option to attend the meeting which starts around 8 p.m.

Each meeting sees a small amount of general business followed by auctions of materials from members' collections; a "show and tell" exhibit of any new memorabilia collected by members and a lecture presented by an occasional outside authority or member on some particular aspect of the Civil War.

For those outside Melbourne

Our interstate members are also served by meetings held in Sydney on the first Monday of each alternate month - February, April, June, August and October at Roseville; see or please contact Brendan O'Connell for further information at or PO Box 200, St Ives, NSW, 2075.

Other states are currently preparing to organise regular meetings. Please enquire through this site if you are interest in participating, all are welcome.
