Welcome to the Swiss Club of WA

Our website has moved to:

The Swiss Club of WA has been operating from Perth Western Australia for over 30 years. It does not have a Club House of its own, but utilises facilities belonging to a number of other, like-minded clubs and Swiss businesses.

The Club owns a rural property at Rolling Green, near Gidgegannup, where two major events are held, The Bonfire and The Annual Picnic. There is a large covered shelter and open grassed area, with BBQ and camping places.
There is also a smaller, more secluded camping area with a small shelter and BBQ. Both shelters feed rain water into tanks, so there is plenty of fresh water. There are also toilets for ladies & gentlemen and a proper shower.

The Swiss Club offers a wide range of activities for members, designed to suit all ages and interests:

We usually hold annual Metzgete / Slaughter Feast and the First of August dinner-dance
For families, we offer the Annual picnic, Samichlaus and
a wildflower walk

The socially-oriented can attend the Monthly Jass-Chlopf

The Objectives of the Club are:

To promote and uphold Swiss culture, tradition and languages
To maintain good fellowship
To further helpfulness amongst its members and to assist
newly-arrived and/or destitute Swiss
To support international and multicultural activities and charities
between the Swiss and other communities in Australia.

Many Swiss in Western Australia have non-Swiss partners, and are reluctant to join our Club because they think that their partner will feel left out. Let us reassure you that non-Swiss people are warmly welcomed in our Club.
