Welcome to the web page of the Townsville Photographic Society.

The society is a very informal collection of people interested in photography and the exchange of photographic ideas. We have no office holders, joining fees or much formality at meetings.

The monthly meetings are held from 7pm on the second Tuesday of each month at:   

 The Rising Sun Hungry Jacks fast food restaurant.

(This is just a temporary venue - this info will be updated in the near future when the new permanent venue is confirmed)

Activities include monthly "Themes" and monthly group outings.

  • Refreshments at meetings are paid for by a meeting sub of  $2.00 per attendee per meeting.
  • Visitors are welcome to come and view our efforts. Active entry to post photos on this site & in the Gallery is restricted to registered members of the society. 
  • Registration entails turning up to a meeting and filling in the Membership Register.
