"BIG EARS & DONKEY TALES"- Our own, State, newsletter. Published every second month, giving donkey news from New South Wales, articles and letters from members and details of our regular activities. It also features advertisements for donkeys and donkey gear. This is your "voice", so please contribute.
NATIONAL STUD REGISTER - This contains breeding details of donkeys through - out Australia and is open to all members to register / transfer their donkeys.
ACTIVITIES - A Championship Show is held annually. Activity Days are also held regularly in various locations, where experienced donkey owners share their knowledge on a broad range of subjects. We also conduct other social activities, trail rides, Christmas Party, etc.
SUPPORT SERVICE - If you would like advice on any aspect of donkey care and management, please contact the Secretary, or anyone else listed on the first inside page of our newsletter.

PERFORMANCE GRADING SCHEME - A training programme, providing a written acknowledgment, through testing, of your donkey's progress and ability.
CONTACTS - With other donkey owners and other donkey societies in Australia and overseas.
SOCIETY BRAND - Available for hire at a nominal charge to members who
wish to brand their donkeys for registration purposes, but who don't want
