The begining...

BASA was founded in 2006 aiming to
connect Brazilian immigrants newly
arrived in South Australia, creating
opportunities for the Brazilian culture
and language to remain active, even
in a country so distant from homeland.

More than 13 years of history

It started as a group of people helping each other, sharing experiences, passing on local knowledge and uniting as a community or extended family. It did not take long until a first June Festival (Festa Junina) was held at the Portuguese Club of SA where many people met and became good friends for years to come.

We are stronger together

We are very thankful to everyone who donated food or contributed to the campaign 'We Are Stronger Together' to help our community experiencing financial hardship during COVID pandemic.
