Annual Dinner Friday 18 October

Speaker will be Associate Professor Dieter Hochuli: The Vital Importance of Insects in Remnant Bushland

Our 32nd Annual Dinner will be on at the Scots Club again this year, at 29 Burrows St Arncliffe, right near Arncliffe railway station.

The guest speaker will be Associate Professor Dieter Hochuli, who leads the Integrative Ecology laboratory in Biological Sciences at the University of Sydney. He will speak about the importance of insects and associated invertebrates in remnant bushland around Sydney. As we don’t yet have much information about invertebrates in the Wolli Creek Valley, his talk will no doubt be very interesting.

There will be the usual multi-prize raffle, and the quiz. Any donations, especially home-made or home-grown items would be appreciated. Please contact us on

This year the Scots Club has a new caterer, Two Barrels Bistro, and our menu will include vegan and gluten free options. They provide wholesome, fresh and affordable meals at the club and their chef, Christopher John Bell, was awarded the Chef of the year NSW AHA in 2017. So we look forward to some excellent food on the night.

The dinner will start from 6pm onwards, with pre-dinner drinks available from the cash bar.
