A night to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Society of St Andrew of Scotland Queensland
The origins of the Society have been notoriously difficult to track, with several different stories from over the years. What is known is that it has been 75 years since Sir William Glasgow, a senior Australian Army officer and politician, sponsored a fund to set up the Society.
The miracle about our Society is that its roots were put down in a chancy and unpredicatable time in Australian post-war history.
The movement was nurtured with Scottish hospitality, Scottish heraldry, and Scottish humour - all qualities that prevail today, and all things we want to celebrate.

About the Society
To promote and foster the interests, activities & institutions of all things Scottish
As our state’s Scottish society, we welcome all those who enjoy Scottish culture and fellowship, for those of Scottish descent or for anyone with an interest in sharing the history and culture of Scotland.
In becoming a member, you will not only benefit from our camaraderie, but you will also share in the uniqueness of knowing our collective efforts will pass on Scottish culture to the next generations in Queensland.
The Society is a not-for-profit organisation and operates to enable philanthropy that aligns with our traditional areas of community support, with a special focus on health and education.
Make your mark in front of Queensland's largest Scottish community
The ball provides an opportunity for promotion to 300+ guests and 450+ members to be strategically grown with this event. From this audience there is a connection to the wider community, as roughly 10% of Queenslanders and Australians identify as having Scottish ancestry, making it the fourth most common in the state and country.
There are a number of opportunities available to sponsor this event. If you are interested in reaching a wide-ranging Scottish cultural audience and being a part of our annual gala event, please view our Sponsorship Information Document or contact us directly.
We acknowledge the Jagera and Turrbal peoples as the Traditional Owners and their custodianship of the lands on which this event is taking place. The Society of St Andrew of Scotland Queensland pay our respects to their Ancestors and their descendants, who continue cultural and spiritual connections to Country. We recognise their valuable contributions to Australian and global society.
