The Centre was established in 1983 by the Federation of Dutch Associations and formed as a company limited by guarantee in 1984.
The Centre was formed to establish a central organization with the following two main aims:
- To preserve the rich history of Dutch contact with, and immigration to, Australia;
- To set up a resources facility for anyone wanting information regarding the Netherlands, its people and their traditions.
The DACC has its offices and meeting rooms in the Abel Tasman Village, Chester Hill .
The current Board of DACC, of five members, is detailed on the Contact page. We would welcome more members or volunteers to become involved in the collection, preservation of our collection and in making it accessible to as many people in Australia as possible.
