Short History:The Society grew out of strong family groups and since its foundation has attracted members from many different Davidson and Sept families.Since our foundation we have produced regular Newsletters and an annual magazine, The Davidson Journal, devoted to charting the history of the clan in Australia.We played a leading part in the restoration of our Chiefship, holding a world-wide Inauguration during the Australian Celtic Festival in 2000 for our then Chief, the late Alister “Jock” Davidson of Davidston. Our current Chief, Grant Davidson 3rd of Davidston is the only Scottish Chief to be a native New Zealander and descends directly from Duncan IV of Tulloch who was Chief during the reign of Queen Victoria.The Society was incorporated in Melbourne in 2001
