Annual Dinner Friday 19 October 2018 BOOKINGS NOW OPEN

Our 31st Annual Dinner will be at the Scots Club again this year, at 29 Burrows St. Arncliffe, right near Arncliffe railway station.

Dr Stephen Gapps, author of The Sydney Wars: Conflict in the Early Colony 1788- 1817, and curator at the Australian National Maritime Museum, has very kindly agreed to be our guest for the evening.

Stephen is a hugely engaging speaker, and some of you may have heard him in the media relating the fascinating and yet largely unknown history of the military conflict between Europeans and Aboriginal Australians around the Sydney region in the early days of the colony. He will also talk about the Wolli Creek and Cooks River region at the time of white settlement.

Stephen will have copies of his book for sale on the evening, and will be happy to take questions and sign your copy!

There will be the usual multi-prize raffle, and the quiz. Any donations, especially home-made or home-grown items would be appreciated. Please contact us at

The dinner will start from 6 pm onwards, with pre-dinner drinks available from the cash bar.

For bookings there are two main options:

You can also pay by cheque, with the price as per the direct deposit option. Cheques should be made out to Wolli Creek Preservation Society Inc. and posted (with a cover note) to PO Box 270, Earlwood, NSW 2206. If possible please email so that we know to expect the cheque.
