The organisation of the Australia Fair is in the hands of the
Australia Fair Foundation. The foundation consists of volunteers who donate their time and effort to the good cause.
The objective of the fair is to get a large audience acquainted with the well-known and unknown aspects of the land and its culture. This is realised through Australian products, music, workshops, film, presentations and especially by giving plenty of practical information.
The Australia fair remains linked to a charity. At the set up of the Australia Fair Foundation it is established that part of the proceeds will still go to the Royal Flying Doctor Service in Broken Hill, Australia. Every fair a second charity will be selected to which also part of the proceedings will be donated. The
Foundation has expand the donation base by setting up an
education fund for young Indigenous Australians living
in Wilcannia, NSW’s.

Activities of the Australia Fair Foundation
The big event with stallholders, presentations, activities, workshops and performances, complimented with Australian style outdoors activities.
Companies could involve the Australia Fair Foundation with the organisation of their Australian event. We could refer you to our contacts or help you with the organising of workshops, readings or presentations.
If needed the Australia Fair Foundation could take over a part of the preparations. Depending on the required activities a contribution will be asked to be donated to the good causes of the Australia Fair Foundation.
If required the Australia Fair Foundation will be present at your event with a market- and information stall. Our own products, e.g. items of the Royal Flying Doctors Service and T-shirts, exclusively designed for the Foundation, will be sold from that stall.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service in Broken Hill provides (free) health care for about 7,000 people, seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, covering an area the size of England. The Broken Hill team consists of eight doctors, four pilots and five nurses operating from one of the major bases in the country. Besides serving the residents in remote areas they also provide health care to tourists and have an important task in prevention and education, particularly projects aimed at the Aboriginal community. To continue their services and maintain the aircraft fleet the Flying Doctor Service depends on donations.
The Education Fund is designed to enable children
or young people of Aboriginal descent who wish to pursue
an education but do not have the means for it, to do so.
Possibilities include training Aboriginal nurses or
social workers, enabling them to subsequently make an
important contribution to their own cultural communities.
Or sponsoring a child that would like to pursue further
education but does not have the means.
The education fund can contribute in various ways:
By extending a scholarship for part or all of an
education or training;
By covering e.g. the costs of travel to and from the
school/ training institute if these costs form an
impediment for further study.
The contribution from the education fund is to be seen
as an impetus. The student too is expected to deliver.
It is important that payment of the scholarship be made
directly to the school or via an independent trustee.
The height and duration of the scholarship will depend
on the results and dedication of the student.
