About Clan Sutherland Australia:

The main purpose of our Society is to establish contact between descendants of Sutherlands’ and associated septs around Australia and World-wide to celebrate and pass on our Sutherland heritage. We attend and support as many Scottish and Celtic events and festivals as we can to preserve and promote our history and culture, while enjoying the kinship that our membership presents. Over the years we have flourished and grown into a vibrant, widespread organisation with members in almost all Australian states and we are happy to welcome new members with either Sutherland ancestry; ancestors from Sutherlandshire Scotland; or a particular interest in our Clan. We proudly display the Sutherland colours, tartans, and banners when we attend festivals such as Bundanoon Highland Gathering in Brigadoon, Australian Celtic Festival in Glen Innes, Berry Celtic Festival in Berry, The Scenic Rim Clydesdale Spectacular – Calling of the Clans in Boonah, Aberdeen Highland Games to name a few. Our participation ensures the support and maintenance of our history and culture of all things Scottish including the endangered Scottish Gaelic language. We provide our members with connectedness and identity through our commitment to our heritage and share it regularly in our monthly newsletter.
