The Royal Geographical Society of South Australia (Inc.) is a voluntary, not-for profit organisation for advancing geographical science and promoting public awareness and enjoyment of Geography and related topics. 

The Society was founded in Adelaide on 10 July 1885. It played a role in two major exploratory expeditions (the Elder and Calvert expeditions - see "Exploration") at the close of the 19th century.

In 1905 the Society purchased the York Gate Library, a major private collection amassed by a London merchant relating to geography, exploration and colonisation. Through this purchase, the Society acquired the permanent home which it still enjoys through its affiliation with the Public Library, now the State Library of South Australia. 
Initially housed in purpose-built premises in the Institute Building, the Society is currently located in the Mortlock wing of the main State Library Building on North Terrace.
