The Jane Austen Society of Melbourne (JASM) is glad you looked us up.

Jane Austen's writings have been an inspiration to many generations and her works continue to be read and studied throughout the world.

Melbourne is no exception and in May 1993 the Jane Austen Society of Melbourne was founded by Carla Hawley.

We thank the maintainers of the "Pemberley" website for the use of the 'janesilh.gif' illustration.

JASM has as its object to bring together people from all walks of life interested in meeting others who enjoy the writings of this exceptional author and wish to participate in discussions and study. We wish to help you educate yourself in this way--Austen's novels tell us a great deal about ourselves as well as the way people lived two hundred years ago when Australia was founded.

Other Photographs

 

   

Ruby from red bricks
you gazed at corn ricks
and pond for the village
for horses for tillage.

We came from down under
and gazed in shy wonder
that Jane Austen lived there
and scripted with true care.
