The Finch Society of Australia
The Finch Society of Australia Inc. is an established organisation designed as a forum to connect "finch fanciers". The society is a part of the animal fancy movement, which although it supports animal rights, is separate from that movement.
The Finch Society of Australia is more than 50 years old[specify] and has expanded from one centralised institution to three individual branches, in Wollongong, the Hawkesbury Valley and the Hunter Region. Although these branches are situated in New South Wales, the society has members from all states of Australia.
The Finch Society of Australia produces a publication called The Finch Breeders Review that is distributed to all members bi-monthly. The society produces an advertisement named 'Bird Trader' to assist members of the society in trading and selling their birds.
The Hunter branch additionally produces a monthly publication called, The Finch Fancier while the Hawksbury Valley similarly produces The Finch Bizz.
