Under its constitution, the Federation has eight members, each of which is the major historical society or organisation in an Australian state or territory, and most of which in turn have affiliated historical societies within their state. In all, there are about 1,000 historical societies in Australia under the umbrella of the Federation.

In order to represent fully all historical and heritage societies and museums, applications for Associate Membership of the FAHS are invited from societies having objects of a similar or identical effect as those of the FAHS, whether in whole or part, and which are not formally affiliated with one of our member societies.
