WSQ clubhouse and some of the members

 

We have our own premises at <19 Pine Street, Greenslopes>, Brisbane, which is situated in South East Queensland, Australia. Our location is only five minutes drive from the Central Business District, which makes it a very accessible for members and visitors from all areas of  Brisbane and beyond.  In July 2009 the Society celebrated it's 30th Year Anniversery , which was a very memorable occasion for all members.  More information on the background of our Society can be found on the  <WSQ History page>.
