The Royal Society of New South Wales is a learned society based in Sydney, Australia. It was established as the Philosophical Society of Australasia on 27 June 1821. It is the oldest learned society in Australia and one of the oldest learned societies in the southern hemisphere.

After a period of inactivity, the title was changed to the Australian Philosophical Society (19 January 1850). The present title of the society was given by Royal Assent on 12 December 1866.

Membership is open to any person interested in the promotion of studies in Science, Art, Literature and Philosophy.
