The Australian Croatian Club Modernisation Project

Donation protected

In 2021 we commenced a project to modernise the club.
Our mandate is to provide an environment where all Australians are welcome; whilst also keeping the culture alive for future generations.

Our proximity to the city, local amenities and our facilities make us an ideal venue for numerous types of events:

•   Functions – parties, weddings, christenings, wakes,
•   Live music and dancing 
•   Restaurant & Catering
•   Social drinks
•   Non-for-profit events
•   Home of the O'Connor Knights Soccer Club
The first stage is the complete renovation of the upstairs bar, dance floor, offices, class rooms and function area.
We  are excited to announce that we have been approved for an A.C.T government grant of up to $75,000 to upgrade our energy efficiency.
This is dependent upon the club also contributing $75,000.
We have setup this Go-Fund-me page to help the club fund these and other restoration works.
Planned Energy efficiency works using the grant:

• Installation of a new heating and cooling system for upstairs (Modern Electrical)
• Installation of ceiling Insulation upstairs
• Double Glazing upgrade to all windows throughout the club
• Installation of sub-floor insulation between the ground floor and upstairs (includes repair of the upstairs dance floor)
• Installation of insulation to the main hall ceiling
• Upgrade of energy efficient lighting and electrical upstairs and downstairs
• Relocation of cool room compressors

• Installation of blinds throughout
