Our Mission & Vision

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.
