The Society of Australian Punk Inc. (SOAP) was established to represent, partner with and support Australian punk research, projects and events in whatever way possible.


As a not-for-profit Incorporated Association, SOAP is able to act as an Auspicing body for Australian punk projects if required, as well as exist as an online platform to showcase both Australian and International punk projects and events.

SOAP proudly supports the following projects and events:

Punk Journey is a multimedia website showcasing the History of the Melbourne Punk Scene from 1977 – 1987.

This in-depth research project is essentially an online museum consisting of archival material from the Melbourne punk, post-punk and hardcore punk scene between the years 1977-1987.

This material is often rare in nature and includes written documentation, interviews, photos, flyers, video footage and MP3 tracks.



On the 14th Decemeber, 2020 Punk Journey represented Australian punk subculture by being part of the panel for the Australian and New Zealand arm of the 7th annual Punk Scholars Network Conference.
