SCI International

Our Chapter


In 2001 a small group of Safari Club International members living in Australia had discussions and resolved to form a local chapter and to apply to Safari Club International, Tucson for chapter affiliation. On 9 July 2002 we were granted affiliation with SCI as the Down Under Chapter Inc.  Our chapter is incorporated in the State of New South Wales.  We are currently the only active chapter of Safari Club International in Australia.


The Down Under Chapter membership holds meetings as decided by the committee and our AGM is usually conducted in November.  Since the Chapters' inception we have held an annual gala fundraising and social event, our Chapter Convention and Hunting and Outdoor Show.  The Convention and Expo brings together chapter members from far and wide together with interested overseas visitors and guests.  There are extensive displays of hunting firearms, clothing and equipment and exhibitions of taxidermy and art.  Outfitters and representatives from Australia, Africa, New Zealand and elsewhere are on hand to assist members to plan their next hunts.  The Hunting, and Outdoor Show is open to the public and all persons interested in the potential benefits of membership of SCI are welcome to attend.


Our club encourages new membership applications - please go to our Contacts page and use the email address there to discuss your application with our President.  Alternatively you can download and print a new member application form however you must be sponsored by a current Chapter member and record that members name on the form.
