Australia

Australia has an active Federation which meets once a year. A Team Show is staged on the meeting weekend. The show is restricted in number of classes and numbers of entries from each society. Points are awarded to the society according to the position of each bird in the class. The society with the most points is the winner.

Several societies in the Federation produce their own magazines, either monthly or bi-monthly.

South East Queensland Zebra Finch Society

This society was formed in February 1986 by a number of Zebra breders who were not obtaining what they required from a Finch Society. A small magazine is produced each month keeping members up to date on happenings within the society, around Australia and the World. Australian Member $20, Overseas Member $25, Junior $10 in Australian Dollars.
