The British Australian Community (BAC) is a community service organisation.
We are a living community!
With a long history and bright future, this organisation will continue to provide a sphere for families and individuals to come together and share friendship and direct support for one another in solidarity of common heritage.
The support by our members enables us to work for our people (see our Constitutional Objectives below). This is achieved not only by promoting and facilitating local activities but by being a voice for our people through advocacy at state and federal levels.
From our foundation in 1967 as The United Kingdom Settlers’ Association this organisation has operated with the same core values we have today. Having evolved over the changing landscape of our nation the UKSA, now known as the British Australian Community, is still going strong today, celebrating the ongoing contributions to Australia by people of British Isles descent.
