Some of the events being planned for the 50th year,
but there will be more.... so watch this space!
The Swedish Club’s mission is to offer the chance to celebrate Swedish holidays and culture, on the other side of the globe. We offer opportunities for you and your family to speak Swedish, go to yabby parties, celebrate Lucia, National Day and midsummer, enjoy a Christmas market, plus much more. If you have recently arrived from Sweden we can help you settle in.
