Club History

                                              Club History 

The club was instigated by a small number of Papua New Guinean students from the University of New South Wales, their families and some Papua New Guinea resident families who would gather on weekends for barbeques, picnics etc to socialise. Interest and numbers grew so it was decided to formally establish the Club at the end of 1993. It was first registered with the Students Union of the University of NSW in 1994. In 1995 the Club deregistered itself from the Students Union as it began to operate independently, serving the wider Papua New Guinean Community. In 2003 the club was incorporated.
