Welcome to Casa Downunder
Official website for Casa de Macau Australia

Mission Statement:
“To maintain and promote the Macanese culture”


Welcome to our Casa de Macau website. We are a non profit Macanese Community Cultural Association with a current National membership in Australia of 780.

On behalf of our ‘Casa’, we hope that you will find this site useful in terms of maintaining and promoting the Macanese culture and history through contacts and affiliations nationally within Australia and on a global platform - internationally. To other users we trust that the information contained is of benefit, fostering understanding and acknowledgement of a culturally diverse world that we live in.

Our Association's main directive since inception in the early 90s in Sydney, is to maintain focus to preserve our Macanese culture and heritage for future generations; raising awareness and profile of our unique ethnicity.

Our ‘Casa’, is joined by sister associations throughout the world; working in unity and solidarity; through collaboration and partnerships with various organisations and agencies. We are also linked to a broader network of global support and unlimited opportunities.

The future is filled with many of ‘life’ challenges for our Casa and Macanese communities here in Australia and abroad, none more so than to be always true to our cause and ourselves.

After many years of searching for an appropriate site, on 24th May 2007, Casa finally acquired a modest property at Sydenham. The premises will be used as a cultural facility and an administrative headquarters. The house will hold our library resources and historical archives including displays and storage of presentations to our Casa. Our new ‘Casa’ will assist to provide support for the Macanese community.

All members are invited to support your community for the betterment of our culture. In particular younger members are encouraged to be involved in the functions and conduct of all our Association activities.

Lets work together to continue our motto of “Keeping the Macanese Community alive”.
