The Australian Association for Maritime History (AAMH) was formed in May 1978 to promote the study, publication and general appreciation of maritime history.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in maritime history. Members contribute to maritime history by supporting the publication of our journal The Great Circle, a Newsletter, Website, Facebook page, conferences, book prizes and events such as Maritime Day.

The AAMH is run by an Executive Council that has representatives from all States and Territories. The AAMH is not restricted to Australia and Australian maritime history: its membership and field of interest are international in scope.
