The Dunera Association was established to keep the Dunera Boys and their families, friends and other interested parties connected.

The Association is not-for-profit and is funded by its members.

It hosts annual reunions in Melbourne, Sydney, Tatura and Hay, publishes regular newsletters and emails, and maintains this website and a Facebook page.

The Association is managed by a volunteer committee, which currently is comprised of:

VICE PRESIDENT: Seumas Spark – seumas.spark@monash.edu.au

TREASURER: Geoffrey Winter (Canberra)

SECRETARY: Jacquie Houlden


IMMEDIATE PAST PRESIDENT: Dr. Peter Felder (Melbourne)

Elections for the committee are held at the Melbourne reunion event annually. If you are interested in joining the committee, please email duneraboys@gmail.com.
