Australian Speleological Federation Inc. is an Environmental Organisation, registered by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities in Canberra, Australia, with the primary objective of protecting the cave and karst environment of Australia. Formed in 1956, it is a national organisation consisting of about 30 clubs and 850 individuals, where each full-member club has votes on the governing Council according to its size. Between the annual Council Meetings, the Federation is governed by an elected Executive. There is also provision for non-voting membership by individuals and organisations. A full conference with field trips is held every two years in a different State.[1]
