What is the Dutch Club? It is not a club house or a building; it is an association of people from Dutch origin or decent and their families, whether they were born in Holland or Australia.

For many Dutch immigrants, being so far away from their families in Holland and learning to adapt to their new lives in Australia was not without its trials and tribulations, it is from that perspective that the club has been there to support its members and guests by bringing people together and extending a welcoming hand.

It was in 1952, that a group of Dutch people who lived in the Brisbane area, held a meeting at St Francis Hall, Brisbane and as a result of that meeting the Dutch Club was founded.
