Since its formation in 1985, the Moreland Turkish Association has participated actively in both the lives of the Turkish community and the broader community in the Moreland area. Its aim is to provide information about Turkish culture and Turkish history and promote friendship and understanding between Australia and Turkey.
We are a small, voluntary organisation and all our projects rely on the raising of funds through grant applications or sponsorship. We also rely on a small army of volunteers who work on each event in many different roles
Turkish breakfast and numerous food stalls will entice the taste buds or bring back memories. Offerings include gözleme (savoury pancakes), kebabs (how many types are there?), and an assortment of sweet and savoury tastes.
A new and exciting stage program will include overseas performers, local and musicians and dance groups and Australian Mehter Band, the first Ottoman style marching band outside Turkey.
All entertainment is free and suitable for people of all ages and abilities.
Visitors can relax over an authentic Turkish coffee prepared on a hot bed of sand and maybe get their fortune told, learn about the cultural traditions of ebru (paint marbling) or buy a new carpet for their house.
