ABOUT the AUS

The Club originated from a group of Austrians with an aim to preserve their culture and heritage, make friends and share interests which, in 1970, became a formal entity.
Jacob Hafner was elected the first president and registration followed in 1971.

With a never failing will to volunteer hard work and an undaunted spirit, the foundation members finally succeeded in obtaining land and in July 1979 opened their own Club House.

These 'pioneers' succeeded in putting their heart and soul into the building of the Club and in forming a choir and folk dance group, kept alive the Austrian culture and heritage. But perhaps their major achievement was in having the courage and foresight in those days, to opt for a fully commercial enterprise.

It is this element of the Club which gives the greatest possible opportunity to keep the Austrian culture and heritage alive in our hearts, as well as introduce it to the broader community here in Australia.
