Triglav in the heart of St John's Park
It is home to all the established club favourites like bingo, raffles, trivia and dance nights, plus a series of traditional Slovenian cultural events that reflect the Club’s heritage.
The Community Club was first established in 1971 by the Slovenian Australian community and opened by Gough Whitlam in 1972. The intention was to give a home away from home to Slovenian migrants feeling homesick in a new country.
Over the past 40 years, Triglav has been a place where many pass down their skills, enthusiasm and facilities for a language school, folk dancing, amateur drama, choir groups and Slovenia’s most popular sport – bocce.
Trigs Bistro is open from 11.30am for lunch and dinner, seven days a week and offers a wide variety of meals from steak, chicken and seafood dishes, to all your classic favourites like burgers, pasta and roast of the day.
The alfresco dining area is the perfect place to sit back and relax with a great meal while the kids explore in the play area or kick a ball around on the grass. Triglav also has function space for up to 150 people.
The Club delivers a great weekly line-up of entertainment and promotions including raffles and bingo, to drag queen trivia, poker and live sport viewing. It is also home to monthly Family Days that are free for members and include activities for kids, live entertainment and dining specials.
What does Triglav mean?
Triglav is the highest mountain in Slovenia and the highest peak of the Julian Alps. The mountain is the preeminent symbol of the Slovene nation. It is the centrepiece of Triglav National Park, Slovenia's only national park.
The 2864 metre high limestone mountain TRIGLAV has been a source of inspiration and devotion for more than a millennium.
The early Slavs believed the mountain to be the home of a three-headed deity who ruled the sky, the earth and the underworld, but no one managed (or dared) to reach the summit until just two centuries ago.
Today Triglav figures prominently on the national flag and seal of Slovenia.
