Currently, only TFNC members can attend meetings and excursions. It is each member’s responsibility to not put others at risk so if you are unwell or have “flu-like symptoms”, please get tested and stay at home.

On arrival at meetings and excursions, the government requires you to check in using the supplied Check in Tas App QR code. Also sign in on the COVID attendance list to record your name and phone number and use the hand sanitiser provided. Please socially distance at the required spacing.

A little bit about us

Our members are both professional and amateur naturalists who share a common interest in the natural world.

We encourage the study of all aspects of natural history and advocate the conservation of our natural heritage. Our journal, The Tasmanian Naturalist, is issued annually and our quarterly information Bulletin covers forthcoming activities. 

The club was formed in 1904, and we are associated with other Field Naturalist Clubs throughout Tasmania and beyond.

Our monthly meetings usually include a guest speaker who presents an illustrated talk on a topic of their particular interest or expertise. Members also contribute and discuss their recent observations of nature. An excursion on the following weekend visits a site, usually in Southern Tasmania, and usually related to the topic of the presentation.

From October 2021 meetings are being held at University’s Sandy Bay campus Law Building Seminar Room (Room 132), located off Grosvenor Crescent near the University sports grounds. The entrance is located off the laneway on the northern side of the building.

Here is a map of the venue and instructions to access
