Fifty years ago, in 1966 a few Swiss Citizens came together to found the Swiss Club of South Australia at a historic site on Greenhill Road, at the Tiffins on the Park. The Swiss Club’s mission was to preserve and promote the Swiss heritage and friendship, as well encourage the goodwill between the members. In the early years, the Club supported the new arrivals by welcoming them at the Airport and helping them to settle down in Adelaide.
1981 a constitution was set up and the Swiss Club became incorporated.
In 1983, the “Swiss Affairs” was organized at the Centennial hall (Adelaide Showgrounds) with the aim to promote the multicultural diversity of Switzerland and its traditions to the wider public within Adelaide / South Australia.
In the same year the “Schweizer Ecke” Swiss Corner at the Radio Station 5 EBI went to air for the first time.
Over all these years the club organised a variety of events, get togethers for members and friends to celebrate the Swiss traditions.
