The DACC was established in 1983. It is a heritage and information centre that keeps the records of Dutch migrants. It has been located at Holland House, Smithfield since 2006. This is a very Dutch environment, where a great variety of Dutch artefacts, crockery, music, clothing, furniture and Dutch foods can be bought. There is a small restaurant/coffeeshop as well.

The DACC maintains a reference library and archive and has regular displays about Dutch events and iconic collections. Books written by migrants and DVDs made by migrants are on display and on sale Currently the DACC runs the DIMEX Project, a survey of experiences of Dutch migrants. The DACC maintains a website and lively interactive Facebook page. It produces a regular Newsletter and we write articles for other Dutch magazines. Last year two exhibitions of 17th century Dutch maps were presented in Fairfield Museum and the Erina Fair Library foyer. We offer assistance with finding tutors for Dutch language lessons.
