The creation of the Polish Club Ashfield was as a result of the arrival in Australia of former soldiers of the Polish Armed Forces and their families after World War II in 1947. These people were the start of the Polish post-war wave of migrants to Australia, then known as ‘displaced persons’. These new Polish Australians needed somewhere to meet and socialise with their friends and families that provided some reminder and comfort of their old home, Poland, in this new place called Australia, their new home. The Club was built and financed by the 208 founder members. The involvement of the whole community was rewarded with success with the official opening of the Club on 21 May 1967. During the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the Club performed the function of Polish Cultural and Promotion Centre, a place where some Olympic Games’ cultural events were held, including meet and greet events with Polish medallists and athletes. These events attracted spectators from around the world to the Club. Famous guests of the Club have been Cardinal Karol Wojtyła who later became Pope John Paul II, Lech Walęsa, Jerzy Stuhr and Michael Klim. Recently, others have included Magda Szubanski and Dr Karl Kruszelnicki. The Club is also home to Polish Folkloric Ensemble ‘Syrenka’.

Mission Statement

  1. To provide good value and quality services in the areas of food and beverage, entertainment, culture and events, rooms for hire and private events
  2. Where possible, to deliver Polish or Polish-influenced themes
  3. To have a club that is modern, profitable, has a growing membership and has multiple sources of revenue


We want to be the premier Polish organisation in Sydney that is at the centre of cultural, entertainment and sporting activities. We want to promote and enhance the reputation of Polish culture to the Polish as well as the Australian community for the mutual benefit of all members and the local community.


The project of embroidering the emblem of the Republic of Poland and pennants of Polish organisations and military units is dedicated to The Cursed Soldiers. The aim of the project was to replace the dilapidated old tapestry of the emblem of the Republic of Poland and worn-out gypsum emblems of Polish organisations and military formations (Army, The Polish Combatants Association, Air Force and Navy). Donated to Ashfield Polish Club for the benefit of the next generations of Poles in Sydney.

Embroider: Mrs Jarosława Jachowska
