The Australian Rhododendron Society was formed in Victoria in 1960, on the initiative of a number of members of the Ferny Creek Horticultural Society, Victoria, having a particular interest in the rhododendron genus, with the objectives of encouraging interest in and disseminating information and knowledge about the genus Rhododendron, and to provide a medium by which all persons interested in the genus may communicate and co-operate with others of similar interest.
We have quarterly meetings and an annual National Convention and AGM where people from all states gather and reconnect. The convention is held on a rotational basis in a different affiliated garden each year.
