A valued part of The Smith Family

Newmarket VIEW Club


Newmarket VIEW Club was formed in 2008.

Currently, the Club sponsors five Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs.

The Newmarket VIEW Club, Brisbane, is a small, friendly club seeking community-minded women.  VIEW members come from all walks of life, and we would be delighted if you could join us in our mission to provide better educational opportunities for young Australians.  We would welcome you as a visitor to our Lunch Meetings ($30 for a two-course lunch) and so perhaps become a member of our Club. 

VIEW was founded by the General Secretary of The Smith Family, George Forbes, in 1960 to support the charitable work of The Smith Family. VIEW stands for the Voice, Interests and Education of Women. It is one of Australia’s leading women’s volunteer organisations and support networks, and empowers women to have their voices heard in issues of importance for the future wellbeing of Australian society. 

If you wish to know more about the Newmarket VIEW Club and also join us for lunch, please phone or e-mail.

Lunch is still being enjoyed by Newmarket VIEW Club members at the Gaythorne RSL Club even though meetings in the upstairs function rooms have been put in abeyance because of the COVID19 restrictions. Members at least can get-together and use raffles and donations to raise funds to continue to sponsor the six students following The Smith Family’s Learning for Life Program.

The Newmarket VIEW Club, Brisbane, is a small friendly club with members coming from all walks of life, and we would be delighted if you could join us in our mission to provide better educational opportunities for young Australians.
