Associazione Siciliana nel Queensland
Sicilian Association of Queensland
Welcome to the homepage of the Sicilian Association of Queensland (Australia) !
Our Association :
The Sicilian Association of Queensland is a cultural, social not for profit organisation established in the state's capital of Brisbane in 1981. We represent the Sicilian community at annual Statehood celebrations and multi-cultural events and we boast over 400 members of all nationalities. Our membership maintain and protect Sicilian customs and dialect and as part of the Italian fabric of life in Australia, Sicilians are represented at the highest levels of government, commerce and law as well as highly respected artisans, chefs and entrepreneurs.
The Association's aim is to foster the continuing Sicilian spirit in the community and be an active participant as a supporter of worthy charities. We raise funds for these charities by holding social functions throughout the year. Our program of events for this year is available at our Calendar page.
The Association also welcomes visiting Sicilian touring groups and invites contact from interested parties wishing to promote contact with Sicilian residents of South East Queensland.
