Welcome

To the Australian Brontë Association website

The Australian Brontë Association is a literary society devoted to the study and enjoyment of the Brontë family: Charlotte (author of Jane Eyre, among others), Emily (Wuthering Heights) and Anne (The Tenant of Wildfell Hall), together with their brother Branwell, and other sisters Maria and Elizabeth.

The Australian Brontë Association meets approximately every two months at the Castlereagh Hotel, Sydney. At each meeting a talk is given on some aspect of the Bronte's life and works or the world in which they lived. In some years we have a weekend conference.

The ABA is independent of the (UK) Brontë Society but it grew out of a group of Australian members of the Brontë Society and we still maintain strong links with the parent body. The Australian Representative of the Brontë Society is a member of the Australian Brontë Association.

The current President of the ABA is Christopher Cooper.
