The Chinese Association of Victoria Inc. (CAV) was founded in1982 by a small group of Chinese who shared common objectives for the future of Chinese in Australia.

The main objectives of the Association were to promote Chinese language, art, dance and music; and to preserve the Chinese Heritage. Please go to “Our Objectives” to read the more comprehensive list of our objectives.

We encourage integration with Australian society, and actively support multiculturalism in Australia. The Chinese have a rich cultural heritage which we can share with other Australians and ethnic communities. We promote greater understanding and appreciation of the Chinese Community in Australia. At the same time we look after the Chinese welfare and cater to our special needs.

We play an active and positive role in affairs which fall into our Objectives.

Please go to “Our History” to learn our past. CAV’s future depends on the supports from not only the Chinese, but the wider Communities.

All are welcome to join our Association and support us.
