Bangabandhu Council Australia was founded in 1989 as the Bangabandhu Parishad Australia with late Gazi Ruhul Haque as the convenor. To make it fully understandable in English the name was changed a little in 2009 replacing “Parishad” with its synonym as “Council”. The organisation started growing in size and activities in the early 90s. Besides Boishakhi Mela which started in 1993, BCA organised many cultural and social events with top performers from Bangladesh and India. BCA also organised a number of Seminars and Symposiums with many distinguished Politicians and Intellectuals from local and overseas.
Over the two decades this organisation has earned the reputation, honour, confidence of the Community as a capable organisation through their continuous hard work. And now it enjoys overwhelming support and participation to any of its activities for the community.
BCA is involved not only organising popular Boishakhi Mela (Bengali New Year Celebration), it is also involved in charity and other community activities.
