So much to little time to see it all.

German Austrian Club, Cabramatta

It's often been said that modern Australia was built on the broken backs of convict labour. If it was only that simple because the prosperous Australia we know today has also been attributed to riding on the sheep's back, to the mining boom and to our diggers who fought and died at Gallipoli and the Somme.

There's a case for all of the above but we wouldn't be the nation we are today without immigration and the clubs that these new migrants established.

As Australia's major gateway for new arrivals, it should come as no surprise that Sydney has no shortage of ethnic and cultural clubs. From Austria to Spain (I haven't been to locate a Club Zimbabwe), these clubs have provided a meeting place for homesick new arrivals. They are vital for the preservation and promotion of cultures in this faraway land.

Aussie' visitors can to get a sense of another culture by tucking into some authentic traditional food and drink, play games, sports, listen to music, dance a jig or just listen to foreign tongues being spoken.

So where are the best ethnic clubs in Sydney? Where is the best venue to immerse yourself in another culture rather than just have a Roast of the Day, a VB and play the pokies?

Below is a list of some of the more established clubs in Sydney.

Believe it or not the Spanish club that used to exist in Wollongong was the best.
Still remember the Spanish club Sunday night disco and the DJ who used to play imported dance music.
It was the best !
