The Royal Society of Victoria has been an active and vital part of Melbourne's scientific heritage since 1854 and is Victoria’s oldest continuous scientific society. The Society developed and promoted Science in the fledgling colony, stimulating, fostering, and sustaining the development of astronomy, anthropology, agriculture, geology, botany, zoology, biology and other natural sciences, engineering, and meteorology.

Some notable milestones that the Royal Society of Victoria was involved in include: sponsoring and organising The Burke and Wills Expedition of 1860; establishment of the National Museum of Natural History (now, Museum Victoria), the Melbourne Public Library (now, the State Library of Victoria) and the Bureau of Meteorology’s weather station (still on-site); stimulating Australia's first Antarctic exploration; the setting-aside of Wilson's Promontory as a National Park; and the formation of the Victorian Institute of Marine Sciences.
