The Croatian culture and people are recognised internationally as being creative, hospitable and very passionate. Croatians love to share their traditions in the kitchen, through crafts and in sports. Experience the unique Croatian customs right here in Brisbane, Australia at The Croatian Club.
The first Croatian Club of Brisbane was in Morningside and bought with personal funds of the Croatian community back in the early 1970's. The community soon outgrew the old Club with both immigration, the first generation Croatian - Australians expanding their families and being fanatical Soccer lovers. This resulted in the community personally funding (some taking on second mortgages on their homes) to purchase 50 acres of pastoral land back in the 1980's. And it's today where The Croatian Club stands strong and proud, built with the hands of our hardworking and tradeskilled Croats.
Our Croatian Club provides a central place for people of Croatian and Australian backgrounds to meet and to share the Croatian language, culture, food, music and customs with people from the local, broader Australian community, and internationally. The Croatian Club provides a fantastic and versatile venue location catering to a range of activities for people to meet and socialise, participation in community functions, where sports are played, traditions passed down to the younger generations, and shared with our visitors.
The Croatian Club is a not-for-profit Croatian community centre that totally relies on members and patriotic volunteers who wish to engage with the broader community, and wanting to carry on the original Foundation Member's vision and ideologies of The Croatian Club.
We are pleased to announce our new Board of Directors elected by the Club members on Sunday, 1 December 2019.
