- The main issue was the great cost for the Club regarding the Property in Gidgegannup, like yearly Shire rates of around $4'000, Fire break upkeep, repairs and the necessary Pestcontrol due this year. We therefore decided to put up an Honour Box and ask all visitors for the contribution of a gold coin per person/day towards the upkeep of the Property.

- Furthermore, if you intend to use the Gas BBQ kindly bring your own gasbottles.

- Equal rights and responsibilities for every person visiting the Property

The Swiss Club offers a wide range of activities for members, designed to suit all ages and interests.
The Objectives of the Club are:
To promote and uphold Swiss culture, tradition and languages 
To maintain good fellowship 
To further helpfulness amongst its members and to assist newly-arrived and/or destitute Swiss 
To support international and multicultural activities and charities between the Swiss and other communities in Australia. Many Swiss in Western Australia have non-Swiss partners, and are reluctant to join our Club because they think that their partner will feel left out. Let us reassure you that non-Swiss people are warmly welcomed in our Club.
