Established in 1969 as a social club for the local Croatian community. The Croatians played a vital role in the construction of Canberra and the Snowy Hydro; and many of those migrants and their descendants still call the territory home.
Subsequent generations have integrated into the Australian community and the club has decided to transform.
The club changed its name from the Croatian Home (Hrvatski Dom) to The Australian Croatian Club.
The management has transitioned to the next generation. Our mandate is to provide an environment where all Australians are welcome; but to also keep the culture alive for future generations.

Whilst located in the suburb of Turner, the club is affectionately known as the "O'Connor Dom" due to its proximity to the O'Connor shops and the fact it is a home away from home for many locals.
