Description

"The Australasian Living History Federation (ALHF) was established in 2002 to source and manage appropriate and affordable Public Liability insurance for Historical Reenactment societies and Living History groups across Australia.

As of September 2012, ALHF has 83 member groups of living history and historical reenactment societies and clubs. Member groups focus on different historical periods and locations from the Ancient Greeks through to Australians in the Second World War. There are over 1,500 individual members across Australia.

Aside from organising public liability insurance, ALHF also acts to represent members’ interests in areas such as legislation that affects reenactment activities, and to foster communication and cooperation amongst individuals and groups in the Australian living history community."

(Description sourced from the ALHF website link provided).

The ALHF offers advice and guidance to members, event organisers and the public on such things as performance and display safety, and the presentation of historical accuracy in our activities."
