Welcome to The Ionian Club Newcastle Inc.

The Ionian Club is an organisation for women who are resident in Newcastle and surrounding districts, or have been newcomers to the area. Our club belongs to a network that exists in Australia and the UK.

The Club provides an opportunity for women to make friends and find those who share similar interests. The first Ionian Club was formed in Launceston in 1946 and gradually spread to other cities: the Newcastle club began in 1983.

The organisation has no political, religious or charity group affiliations. Fellowship, friendship and fun are the basic ingredients of the Newcastle Ionian Club.

Our club membership is drawn from Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens and the Hunter Valley. To find out more about us, visit the various sections of our website. For more information you can email our secretary by visiting our contact page by clicking here.
