Membership

Mainstreet Australia provides a forum for information exchange, networking, advocacy and professional development for the people, businesses and projects in Australia’s traditional main streets and town centres.

Mainstreet Australia’s membership approach is simple. Subscribe to become a member below. With the impact of the COVID-19 virus, our current complimentary membership has been extended from 30 June to 30 September 2020. As a result, our individual membership fees for 2020-21 have been reduced by 25% to $75 (plus GST). Membership payments are now due. 

That’s around $1.50 per week to stay connected, informed, inspired and support advocacy and research to keep our main streets alive and thriving.
