The Australia-Japan Society of Coffs Harbour Inc aims to make Coffs Harbour the most friendly city in Australia for Japanese visitors. It offers our members the opportunity to learn about Japanese language and culture and develop cross cultural friendships.
We are a non profit organization. Our members are volunteer Australian and Japanese. We enjoy the full support of the Coffs Harbour City Council and open our membership to anyone who shares our goals of developing friendship between the people of Australia and Japan.
Started in 1990, two years after the sister city relationship was established between Coffs Harbour and Sasebo, the Australia-Japan Society of Coffs Harbour has grown and now enjoys a number of regular events including, monthly get-togethers, annual Japanese speaking competitions, cultural festivals and numerous Japanese receptions throughout the year.
