UFO Research (NSW) was established at a public meeting on 10 November 1991.

The group was one of the first UFO groups in Australia to launch a public website in 1995.

On 26 April 2007, UFO Research (NSW) became an Incorporated (Inc) Association (INC9887379) under the New South Wales (NSW) Government, Australia, Associations Incorporation Act 2009.  The registered legal name therefore was changed to UFO Research (NSW) Incorporated.  The Association is governed by rules that comply this Act and are documented in our Constitution (640 kB pdf document).  The Act is administered in NSW by Fair Trading.  Under the tax legislation in Australia the Association is assessed as a non-profit company (Australian Tax Office Guide NAT 7967).

Following incorporation UFO Research launched on Facebook and subsequently, Meetup Group .

The third and current website (WordPress) was launched on the 1 March 2015.

Our Youtube Channel was launched on 10 May 2015.  Our speakers’ presentations, at meetings since May 2015, can be viewed on our Youtube Channel.

 Mail chimp management, of the email news updates and website integration, was introduced in September 2016.

The history of UFO Research can be viewed through our website, using the Internet Archive Wayback Machine.  The first archived snapshot of our website occurred on 27 December 1996 ( click on the year in the horizontal menu and then a highlighted date in the calendar to view the website at that date).

Australia and New Zealand have a rich history of public and private UFO organisations. Please see UFOinfo.com for current UFO Organisations in Australia.
