Established in 1978

The aim of the club is to keep the Dutch traditions going within the Australian community - to please the older generation, but at the same time
teach the younger ones about the food, drink and party habits, and how much fun can be had.

Our premises are fully licensed and specialise in imported Dutch beers. The law states that after 10pm no take-away liquor can be sold. We serve delicious Dutch meals, such as Boerenkool, Hutspot and Pea soup as well as Croquettes and Bitterballen. The Club has a Dutch Shop where you can purchase all your Dutch goodies, from Dutch licorice to vegetables.

There are over 400 members from all over Australia. From Queensland, as far as Mt Isa, down to Adelaide, and Wellington NSW, near Dubbo.

Each year we celebrate in true Dutch tradition at our 3 day event, the Dutch Festival. This is held in the last full weekend in March.

Actually, there are several annual functions at our club:

In April, it is the King's Birthday Celebrations - that's the Dutch King. The first Wednesday in October we celebrate Leidens Ontzet. December is the month of Sinterklaas (St Nicholas) parties. One day is for the children (of all age), another day is for the older members, and yes, we have lots of Dutch lollies and Zwarte Piet (Black Peter) of course. We also have our annual Christmas Dinner.

We are open every Tuesday from 10am till 4pm and every Friday from 11am till late.

Our Club is run purely by volunteers, from the barman, to the cleaner; the chef, to the gardener.

Did you know.. Our club has a library containing variety of Dutch Books for members to borrow. An unlimited number of books can be borrowed any Tuesday or Friday. Just pop in and ask for Leny.

The Club has several interest groups: Klaverjassers, Billjarters, Scrabblers and a Dutch Class. It's a friendly place to meet friends and... no noise from poker machines, as we don't have any.

We also have a well stocked shop with lots of Dutch goodies. Dutch licorice, yum, there's nothing like it!

So why not pop in on Friday night and enjoy a traditional Dutch meal, such as boerekool or hutspot, or just enjoy a cup of coffee or a drink in our relaxing friendly atmosphere.
