The Fellowship of First Fleeters was formed in March 1968, when descendants of those who arrived in New South Wales, in January 1788, on the eleven ships of the First Fleet – government officials, convicts, seamen, marines, and their wives and children – gathered to celebrate and honour their ancestors. Through meetings and events Australia-wide, members encourage an ongoing interest in Australian history. An important activity of the Fellowship is to locate and identify with bronze plaques, the graves of the First Fleeters.

First Fleet House is located in Woolloomooloo, Sydney, on land first granted to the fleet purser, and later commissary, John Palmer. The Fellowship holds an extensive research library, publishes a bi-monthly magazine and maintains an informative website at www.fellowshipfirstfleeters.org.au.
