10th Birthday

Welcome graphic

Our organisation is a chapter of the NSW Fellowship of First Fleeters.
Our members meet bi monthly on the first Saturday of each second month to discuss matters relating to the colonisation of Australia when our ancestors first arrived on the First Fleet in 1788.
Our membership is at present 48 but the numbers who would be eligible in the Tamworth area alone could be in the hundreds.

Our Mission

Our mission is to remind the public of our valuable heritage.
"To live in the hearts and minds of descendants is never to die"


Organization News

To view photos of our activities please click on  "Photos" in the left hand column. We will be conducting all future meetings at the Family History rooms 62 North St Tamworth.

Our systym of using our own members as guest speakers is very popular.

We had a great Australia Day again this year with breakfast at the Tamworth Entertainment Centre (TREC) and then our usual pilgramage to Wallabadah for an Australia Day Picnic in the First Fleeters Memorial Park.

A new memorial to those who travelled on the Second Fleet has now been added.

Go to "10th Birthday" on the left hand column for photos and story.
