The Papua New Guinea Association of Australia Inc (PNGAA) is a vibrant volunteer organization committed to strengthening the relationship between Papua New Guinea & Australia so that connections between the two regions can grow through understanding and mutual respect. The PNGAA plays a key role in recognising the importance of the countless stories that have shaped who we are and who we hope to be - an inclusive, caring multicultural society built on trust.
The PNGAA has existed since 1951 – originally called the Retired Officers Association of Papua New Guinea which was primarily an advocacy body for Superannuation benefits for Australian Administration Officers in the pre-Independence Territory of Papua & New Guinea.
Sixty-eight years later, it remains a unique entity – relevant to contemporary Australians and Papua New Guineans. Membership is open to any individual or organisation that has a strong interest in PNG and its close relationship with Australia, both historically and strategically as Australia’s nearest neighbour.
The PNGAA has over 1,000 members world-wide - although the majority are resident in Australia -and is represented through various social media platforms. We also have a rapidly growing ‘PNGAA Collection’ of historical material.
The Association produces a quarterly journal (68 page full colour), the Una Voce, which is a vital part of the association with anecdotes to entertain, historical articles to inform and a wide variety of material on books, Vales, reunions and general information. All of the Journals dating back to December 1978 can be found in a digital format in the archives on the PNGAA website which are accessible by members.
