The first Polish organisation was established in August 1863 in Melbourne, known as the Committee of the Polish Relief Fund, with the aim of fundraising to support the national uprising again Russian domination. Since then, numerous other Polish organisations were established with the main aim of freeing Poland from foreign domination or undemocratic political systems. In addition, many groups and organisations in Victoria were set up to serve the various interests of the Polish émigré community.
