Australian American Association in South Australia

PO Box 6714, Halifax Street SA 5000


The Australian American Association in South Australia was formed in March 1941 to foster and promote better understanding, mutual appreciation and friendly co-operation between the peoples of Australia and the United States of America.

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. The Association has the full support of the Governments of Australia and America.

State Organisation

A Council, made up of members elected at the Annual General Meeting, meets monthly and has the responsibility of guiding and overseeing the operations of the Association in South Australia.

Federal Organisation

The Australian American Association in South Australia is a member of the Federation of Australian American Associations Inc. Each year a Federal Conference is held where representatives from each state meet to discuss the activities of the past year and to formulate goals and guidelines of the Association throughout Australia for the coming year. Members travelling interstate are always welcome to attend any Association functions being held during their visit. Contact numbers can be obtained from the Adelaide office.
