Our Approach

Established in 1972, ANZAA is a non-profit organization, whose mission is to provide a forum for a large and active membership of Australians, New Zealanders and Americans, residing in Minnesota, to connect and socialise through regular events in and around the Twin Cities.

Our Story

DOWN UNDER CLUB & ANZAA HISTORY

The Down Under Club started intermittently in the early 70’s with a group of expats from Australia and New Zealand, working for Minnesota Companies like 3M, Control Data & University of Minnesota.

On ANZAC day April 25th 1972 the Down Under Club officially incorporated with bylaws and a board.

Meet the Board

Here are those ANZAA members that have joined the board to bring you some of the best Australian and New Zealand themed events.
And they all do this voluntary.
