Glebe Foreshore Walk with Lunch

On Sunday, 16 July, we organised a Glebe Foreshore Walk to the Sydney Fish Market.
Despite the cooler and cloudy conditions, 15 keen walkers joined us on the day. We first gathered at the dog park in Glebe Foreshore Parks near Chapman Road where we had a quick meet-and-greet and debrief. We then made our way along Rozelle Bay and Blackwattle Bay via the Glebe Waterfront Walk towards the Sydney Fish Market. This walk has been newly renovated with flat pavement and boardwalks, which made the trip very pleasant for all of our keen walkers.

After about 45 minutes (2.5km), the group arrived at the Fish Market where we met with the smell of fresh seafood and the ocean. The Fish Market is a very popular destination, and so as expected there were large crowds gathered there. Some of our walkers sat outside trying to catch glimpses of sunlight with a coffee in hand, while others wandered inside the busy Market.

After 30 minutes, we gathered again and walked back along the Waterfront Walk towards Glebe Foreshore Park where our walkers were greeted with a hot, homemade Bündner Gerstensuppe with bread and cheese, and variations of chocolate. Once everyone was full and content, they were gifted chocolate bars, kindly donated by Lindt and Lindt Chocolate Shops Australia.

We sincerely thank Lindt for their kind donation and appreciate their continual support to the Swiss community in NSW. We also thank all our walkers who joined us on the day despite the weather - we hope you had a wonderful Sunday!


On Sunday, 11 June, the Swiss Club of NSW hosted the 55th Annual General Meeting (AGM) at The Royal Leichhardt. Fifteen Swiss Club members attended the meeting, and together with 30 proxies received, we were able to create a quorum and proceed with the AGM. All current Board of Directors, the President, Trustee and Auditor were all voted to serve again for another year. The Swiss Club was pleased to offer Ruth Will a Lifetime Membership to the Swiss Club of NSW for her continuing support and outstanding efforts made to the Club. Ruth has provided homemade merchandise to the Club for many years now, and her support to the greater Swiss community and Club over these years has been exceptional and deserving of Lifetime Membership. Thank you for all your support and volunteering, Ruth.

The Swiss Club really appreciates any help and support you can offer as volunteers – help your Club help its Swiss community.

We anticipate a similar response from all members for our next AGM in 2024 likely at the same venue and time.

Buure Z'morge at Mosman Art Gallery

On Sunday, 7 May we hosted a Buure Z'morge (Swiss Farmers’ Breakfast) event in the Grand Hall at the Mosman Art Gallery and Community Centre. All the Swiss decorations hanging in the hall and the red and white tablecloths made the space just that bit more special.

We had an excellent attendance with over 100 guests. This year we had great help from Chef Felix, from Felix Halter Catering who made an amazing effort in the kitchen along with our volunteers.

We offered tea and coffee, a selection of Swiss cheeses from F Mayer Imports, fleischkäse, bresola, coppa, double-smoked ham and sausages from German Butchery Deli & Café and Spiess Australia, homemade quiche and birchermüesli, hard-boiled eggs with mayonnaise, a fruit platter, honey, and jams; and, who could forget the wide selection of delicious, crusty Swiss bread from Organic Bread Bar who kindly baked us Zopf for the event. After the buffet, our guests had the opportunity to purchase Swiss goodies like cheese, salad dressing, cured meats and more from Felix to take home with them.

A special mention was made for Sigi Achermann who turned 87 years old! Sigi and his wife Ruth have been integrally involved in the Swiss community for decades. Their contributions to the community and Club have been unrivalled. To commemorate this amazing milestone, the Swiss Club gifted Sigi with a birthday hamper with lots of Swiss goodies. Alles Guete zum Geburi, Sigi!

We would like to thank Felix and our wonderful team of volunteers who helped on the day. Their efforts make this event a favourite among the Swiss community in Sydney. We also thank the Mosman Art Gallery and Community Centre once again for providing a beautiful space that our guests enjoyed and a fully equipped kitchen. Lastly, we thank everyone who attended and supported your Swiss community. We hope you had a wonderful day and enjoyed the Swiss food!

Wild Mushroom Foraging

On Sunday, 16 April 2023, 16 keen foragers made the journey to Hampton State Forest to forage wild Saffron Milk Caps & Slippery Jacks.

We first met at Millionth Acre Recreation Area for a meet-and-greet and quick debrief before venturing off into the forest. The foraging site was only a 3-minute drive away where we split into groups and spent about 2 hours on the hunt for mushrooms.

This year, we were fortunate to have a considerable bounty of mushrooms! We then made our way back to the Recreation Area where we served a cheese and meat platter and cooked a wild mushroom and pea risotto for our hungry group of foragers to enjoy. We would like to sincerely thank all our guests for helping with setting up our space, preparing the mushrooms, and cooking the risotto. We really appreciate the help and sense of community spirit. After lunch, a few of us finished off the day with a well-deserved "Zvieri" at Mountain-Ama Cafe in Katoomba.

Thank you to everyone who braved the journey with us. We hope you had a wonderful day and look forward to seeing you all again!
