Promoting Chinese language, art, dance and music; and to preserve the Chinese Heritage

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.


The Chinese Association of Victoria is run by a capable team of volunteers, who give freely of their time to ensure that Mission and Objectives of the Association continue to thrive and grow in Victoria.
