Thank you for your interest in the Vegan Society of Australia. At the time of writing it has been recorded that the number of vegans in Australia exceeds 480,000. We are a diverse group of people representing a wide range of ages with a wide range of interests. What we share in common is a concern about the destruction that a diet and lifestyle based on exploitation of animals is doing to our environment, our country and our planet.
The seriousness of the issues we tackle does not preclude us from having fun, however. Our social gatherings, including the many meetup groups, provide occasions to relax among people who sympathise with our views and are also doing something practical about the issues involved.
If you choose to join us you will be part of an international movement searching in a rational way for solutions to the problems of civilization.

Although no longer seeking members, we are still actively engaged in research into proprietary products free of animal ingredients.
We still offer free advisory services for members covering such topics as: help in finding medical practitioners sympathetic to vegans; shops selling non-leather shoes. Donations towards this work are always welcome.
