CAV Chinese School 2021 Enrolments open (click on image below)

Formed in 1982, the Chinese Association of Victoria is the largest Chinese-Australian Association in Victoria and has a proud history.

From the five-acre club facility that it owns in Wantirna, the CAV conducts numerous activities including a weekend Chinese language school, Ballroom Dancing, Table Tennis, Tai Ji, and Karaoke for its 1000+ members. It is a registered Not-for-Profit charity organisation.

Get Involved

Come join our community! Aside from a myriad of weekly activities, come meet and interact with other people and make new friends. Bring your children along to our many cultural events, so they can learn something about their cultural heritage.





As per the latest rulings, community facilities can now open, and the two‑square‑metre rule is the only limit on the number of people who can attend. No group limits apply.

The Victorian Government has also introduced a new role – “COVID Marshall” to ensure that there is someone at all times taking responsibility to ensure that the covid safe rules are followed.

Please see: and familiarise yourselves with this requirement, which must be implemented for all subgroup activities at the CAV.
