The Athenaeum Club is one of Australia’s oldest and finest private social clubs, confident in its heritage and traditions yet enlightened and contemporary in its outlook. For gentlemen of good character, it upholds the core principles of courtesy and consideration for others, formality, impeccable values and behavior, together with total respect for fellow members’ privacy. Its members are drawn from the fields of science, business, literature, the arts, the learned professions and the public service.

Membership is multi-generational, multi-sector and multi-interest, large enough for a rich diversity yet small enough for members to be able to know a good cross-section of other members.

The benefits of membership and the facilities on offer to members are extensive. Partners, family and friends of members are very welcome to participate in a wide range of Club activities.

Private Functions

The Club is a wonderful venue to host a special event, celebrating the many milestones in one’s life.
