The Centre was established in 1983 by the Federation of Dutch Associations and formed as a company limited by guarantee in 1984.

The Centre was formed to establish a central organization with the following two main aims:

  • To preserve the rich history of Dutch contact with, and immigration to, Australia;
  • To set up a resources facility for anyone wanting information regarding the Netherlands, its people and their traditions.

The DACC operates this online Hub.
