  • find out about what's going on and engage with decision-making in the Branch
  • discover the quarterly challenge
  • browse and borrow from the library.

Quarterly Branch Meetings and Social Meetings are open to all members and their guests, so come and visit soon.

Meetings are held upstairs at the BVAC Hub, 140 Weller Rd, Tarragindi, Qld

  • 9am  until 1pm on the second Saturday of every month.
  • $5.00 entry fee
