  • About

    The Austrian Cultural Society ( Austrian Club Melbourne ) was founded in 1944 and is dedicated to maintaining the connection to Austria, its culture and traditions. Originally set up to provide help to Austria at the end of the war, with the big influx of migrants in the early 50s and 60s, it quickly became the club for the Austrians and Friends of Austria as a meeting place. Today the club is a busy thriving club on 2 acres of beautifully maintained parkland which caters for both, the older migrants as well as the younger, often Australian born generations. Many of these will want to keep in touch with the rich historical and cultural heritage, stretching from the ice ages to the modern successor of a thousand year old empire.


    • To make known and promote Austrian culture in Australia with particular emphasis on Austrian Cuisine, Music and Arts.
    • To help enable children and young people to participate in social, cultural and artistic activities.
