About Us

The Society of St Andrew of Scotland Queensland is Queensland’s Scottish society that welcomes all those who enjoy Scottish culture and fellowship. 

The country which counts St Andrew as its patron saint is not simply the ancestral home of some of our Society members; it is also a source of inspiration for culture, business, entertainment, and special interest.  

The Society is a not-for-profit organisation and operates as a fund to enable philanthropy that aligns with our traditional areas of community support, with a special focus on education. 

Our objective is to initiate, maintain, advance, and support activities and institutions of a Scottish character and to promote and foster the interests of all things Scottish in Queensland. 

As our state’s Scottish society, we welcome all those who enjoy Scottish culture and fellowship, for those of Scottish descent or for anyone with an interest in sharing the history and culture of Scotland.

Our members not only benefit from our camaraderie, but we share in the uniqueness of knowing our collective efforts will pass on Scottish culture to the next generations in Queensland.


All that we say and do is to honour Scotland and her descendants. This is done through our events and our benevolence through our bursaries.
