In the years 1996, 1997 and 1998 the Association conducted cultural trips to Ashford, a small town in Northern NSW where a large number of post war Sardinians settled on tobacco plantations. These trips were a means of all Sardinians meeting again after many years since the collapse of the tobacco industry.

From 1996 onwards the Association has participated in all Italian festivals that were held in Queensland and most recently the Festitalia Festival (July 2007) where traditional Sardinian foods and tourism brochures were presented to the 40,000+ visitors.

The Association has undertaken many cultural bus trips.

  • In 2001 a visit to Lismore and the New Italy Historical Museum at Woodburn
  • 2002 a trip to Bunderberg where a large number of Sardinian migrants settled on the tobacco
  • 2003 to Hervey Bay to chase the whales
  • 2004 to the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers followed by informative visits to the vineyards and wineries in around Stanthorpe
  • 2005 to Tamborine Mountains
  • 2006 to Byron Bay, New Italy and Lismore
  • 2007 to Tangalooma for whalewatching
