The President thanks all members and guests who attended the 69th St Andrew's Day Men's Dinner 2016. It was a great success.

We were honoured to have as Guest Speaker, Professor James Allan, Garrick Professor in Law at the TC Beirne School of Law, University of Queensland. His address enthralled all - it was the quietest we have heard the room during a guest speaker in years - perhaps finally the prayer for restraint is having an affect!

Please visit our Facebook album for some photos from the evening.

The 19th International Tartan Day is being held on 11th July 2015 from 9am to 4pm

It is taking place in King George Square in front of Brisbane City Hall and is proudly supported by the Brisbane City Council

International Tartan Day is an occasion where the Scottish diaspora commemorate two Scottish historical events and celebrate their heritage. The day is held on 1 July, the anniversary of the repeal of the 1747 Act of Proscription that banned the wearing of tartan. The day also acts as a celebration of the Declaration of Arbroath which was signed in 1320.


To enable as many as possible to participate, the Australian Scottish Community Qld holds the event on the nearest available weekend to the 1 July.
