The purpose of the Swiss Club of NSW is to promote social activities and friendships within the Swiss Community of NSW, and encourage friendly interaction with other clubs, Australians and Swiss affiliates. We aim to keep Swiss traditions and culture alive in Australia and perhaps create a few of our own along the way.
WHO WE ARE
The Swiss Club of NSW became a Club in 1924 when the former Swiss Society of NSW changed into the Swiss Club of NSW and succeeded the Society. However, the Swiss Club of NSW was founded on Wednesday, 2 October 1968 and currently has around 300 members and growing. We are a non-profit organisation and therefore membership fees are kept as low as possible. We organise functions at various venues, and have strong ties to other Swiss interest groups and the Swiss Consulate to support all Swiss activities in NSW.
