Founded in 1920, we are Australia’s oldest professional association of complementary therapists. Representing Western herbalists and naturopaths, we are the only national professional association specifically concerned with the practice and education of Western herbal medicine (WHM) in Australia. Our mission is to serve and support our membership and promote and protect the profession and practice of Western herbal medicine.
We have a range of membership options for professionals, interested parties and students and our members have access to great resources such as Natural Standard databases, our online discussion forum, professional guidance and more!
We also work to connect the public with our highly trained practitioners through our Find A Practitioner service.

Nominations have now closed for the NHAA Awards of Excellence, which are being incorporated into the 9th International Conference on Herbal Medicine. The awards will form part of the International Conference Industry Profession Dinner.
The Awards recognise those who inspire their colleagues, patients or community and celebrate leaders in their field who are striving to advance the quality and standards of their profession. For more details go to the NHAA Awards page.
This morning NHAA was advised by the Community Services & Health Industry Skills Council (CSHISC) that they will be honouring the original decision to remove the Advanced Diplomas (this applies to WHM, Naturopathy, Nutrition and Homeopathy).
NHAA and the Degree Standards Collaborative will now be able to re-focus on developing the course requirements for the degree programs and look forward to bringing you further updates in the coming months.
