Australia’s longest living organisation may not be who you think it is.
It’s not Houghton Wines or Westpac or the Australian Agricultural Company and it’s certainly not McDonalds. There wasn’t a Big Mac in sight when community leaders Governor and Lady Macquarie created Bible Society in 1817.
Ahead of its Bicentenary on 7th March 2017, Bible Society remains the oldest continually operating organisation in our nation’s history. The only change is the name. In 2010, the Bible Societies in each state merged into a single organisation, Bible Society Australia.
