Upcoming Events

Talks, Tours, Lectures, Conferences & Symposia

The Royal Society of Victoria offers a rich program of events concerned with science in Victoria and its place in our society. Our “ordinary meetings” represent our core lecture program, generally provided on the second and fourth Thursday of the month. The lectures are low cost and open to the public, free to our members. Evening lectures generally start at 7:00pm; the venue is the Society’s Ellery Theatre, upstairs at 8 La Trobe Street, Melbourne. We also convene ad-hoc events, forums and conferences each month with our partners, and occasionally host events at other locations around the state.

For a small cost, members and guests are invited to socialise and network over food and drink ahead of our lectures; tickets for both lectures and social components are available from each event’s page. The listings below provide details of all currently programmed events.

Statewide events convened under the Inspiring Victoria program, including National Science Week events, are generally listed on the related website maintained by the Society: inspiringvictoria.org.au .

**Please note many of our events are now presented in a hybrid format, with options for both in-person and webinar attendance. You can access our archive of events filmed earlier from our video page.
