Welcome to the Australian American Association

in South Australia

Australia has a special bond with America, a nation with which we share strong cultural, historic, social and economic ties. We believe it is important for Australia and the USA to have a good relationship now and in the future and for present and coming generations to be aware of, and realize the value of this friendship.

Our association fosters and promote better understanding, mutual appreciation and friendly co-operation between the peoples of Australia and the United States of America. The Association has the full support of the Governments of Australia and America.

The council and members of the Australian American Association in South Australia gratefully acknowledge the generous donation from the Chugg family in honour of the late Richard Chugg and from a member, who wishes to remain anonymous, in honour of their late father. These donations enabled the development of this website.
