Archives & Education Foundations

RA&HS Archives Foundation

The Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of SA Inc has a range of archival information on site relating to the history of the Society, Royal Adelaide Show and Royal Adelaide Wine Show. This material is available for research purposes on an appointment basis.

As we are a 'collecting' archive we welcome donations of relevant material such as photographs, award certificates, ribbons, rosettes, trophies, medals, posters, showbags etc.  Monetary donations to the Archives Foundation are also welcomed in order that  we can continue to preserve and restore our collection. For information regarding Cultural Gifts Program and tax deductible gifts consult the Australian Tax Office.  For a copy of the Archives Foundation Brochure please click here to download.
