APPA is an incorporated association, and therefore has its own constitution, which guides what we do.  Our constitution can be amended by our members in a general meeting.

Being a member gives you a formal say in the way that APPA is run, by voting at the annual general meeting.  It also allows you to stand for election to the Committee.   If you love the Adelaide Park Lands, then being a financially paid-up member is "putting your money where your mouth is".

Joining APPA signifies that you endorse our Objectives

As a financial member of APPA, you get:

  •  the priceless satisfaction of supporting APPA's work;
  •  free participation in our monthly guided Park Lands walks;
  • eligibility to become a Park Ambassador and lead an annual guided walk through one Park;
  • discounted tickets to our supporters movie events (last one was on Sun 13 August - others to be arranged);
  •  the responsibility to help guide APPA's activities through the Annual General meeting; and
  •  a printable PDF membership certificate (see below).

In 2017 we experimented with offering a random draw prize (an iPad Mini Wifi) for members who joined or renewed by 6 August 2017.   The prize draw on Tuesday 8 August was won by long-time APPA stalwart, Emeritus Professor Wilfrid Prest.
