Sevenhill, Clare Valley, South Australia


The Polish Pioneer Descendants Group Incorporated is an organisation of descendants of early Polish migrants to South and others who share an interest in these pioneers, their lives and families any their impact on South Australia.

The Group was formed in the 1980s to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the State and the beginning of a Polish settlement in the Clare district in the late 1850’s.



As well as acting as a source of information about family history and the lives of the early Polish migrants, the Group provides opportunities for members and their families to meet other descendants in pleasant social settings.

Each year the Group holds an Annual General Meeting in Adelaide in Autumn and a picnic at Polish Hill River in Spring. Both are occasions for members to share a picnic meal and swap information.

Members also receive the Group's newsletter and are encouraged to submit articles for publication.


Membership is open to all who subscribe to the Group's objects and pay the Group’s subscription fee, currently $10.00.

Every member's story is unique and adds to the sum of our knowledge about these early migrants and their many and varied contributions to our State. Polish pioneer ancestry is not a prerequisite for membership.
