The first Polish organisation was established in August 1863 in Melbourne, known as the Committee of the Polish Relief Fund, with the aim of fundraising to support the national uprising again Russian domination. Since then, numerous other Polish organisations were established with the main aim of freeing Poland from foreign domination or undemocratic political systems. In addition, many groups and organisations in Victoria were set up to serve the various interests of the Polish émigré community. These include: Polish RSL club, ex-servicemen associations, folk singing groups and choirs, dance ensembles, Polish community centres (of which there are currently six in Victoria), an umbrella organisation named Polish Community Council of Victoria, Polish newspapers/magazines, Polish community radio programs, Polish language Saturday schools, welfare organisations, and many interest groups e.g. ski club, stamp collecting, art.
The Polish Club in Albion, also known as the Polish Sporting, Recreation and Community Association Inc, was established in 1984 and officially operates from the current premises since 1993.
Our aim is to promote and foster Polish culture, language, habits and traditions in Australia as well as support and provide sporting and social activities.
We support activities of Polish organisations and community groups. We are the central hub for the biggest Polish Soccer Club in Melbourne “Western Eagles”, Billiard Club, Bridge Club and Polish Senior Citizens Club.
The Polish Club in Albion is open to everyone. This is a great place, where in the friendly Polish atmosphere members take care of family, friends and business associates.

Club rooms are available for hire for family functions, community events or business purposes. The Club is open daily, except Tuesdays, from 12pm to 8pm
