We are all about bringing people, near and far from Tokyo, together to socialise and network at enjoyable events catering to a variety of tastes.
We are a volunteer organisation with a number of dedicated individuals kindly donating their personal time without remuneration to organise, manage and run events. We try and keep ticket prices to our events as low as possible through donations of food and beverage and specific event sponsorship.
At the end of each year any surplus funds and money directly raised from auctions and raffles which are held at events is then donated to charity. In the recent year we raised in excess of 1 million JPY which was divided between our two charities of choice, Tokyo English Life Line (TELL) and Heart Tokushima
Please register here if you would like to get involved with the Society and help out with event organisation.
Our premier event is the annual Australia Day Gala Ball and is held in January each year. In 2015 the Fire & Ice Ball saw over 250 people came together to indulge in fine dining and Australian wines and to dance the night away. Stay tuned for further information on next years ball, which is certain not to disappoint.
Our other major functions include the annual Family BBQ which is held in the Australian Embassy Garden and includes games and activities for the kids, an Australian BBQ and beer and wine. You also don’t want to miss the Melbourne Cup Luncheon, our own version of a day at the races which is held race day at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo.
Throughout the year we also organise wine tastings, sausage sizzles, children's parties, coffee mornings and a variety of other events. Please view our Events page for more information.
