Welcome to the American Australian Association

The American Australian Association is the largest privately funded non-profit organization dedicated to broadening, strengthening and developing ties across the Pacific. For 75 years, our programs have connected our two cultures, guided our people and provided new opportunities for a diverse network of trail blazers.

ANZAC Day & Veterans’ Lunch

Please join this ANZAC Day to celebrate and recognize the universal qualities of courage, ‘mateship’ and sacrifice made by all Australian, New Zealand and American service personnel who have fought and been lost at war. This esprit de corps was embodied at the ANZAC landing in Gallipoli, as well as by Australian and American troops who served under the joint Australian command of General Sir John Monash at the 1918 WWI Battle of Hamel and beyond.
