The Balmain Association represents Balmain, Birchgrove and Rozelle communities. It was formed in November 1965 by a handful of residents who wished to preserve the best of the suburbs’ history, architecture and natural beauty and aims to:

  • Improve the living, working and recreational amenities of our area;
  • Maintain all features having natural, architectural and or historical value of the area and keep a permanent collection of historical interest;
  • Seek the cooperation of everyone concerned in the realisation of the above.
