Adria Village was established by the Croatian community of Canberra and Queanbeyan. Its official opening in 1994 was the result of years of voluntary work undertaken by members of the local community, both in the administration and building of the Village. Adria Village Limited (established in 1989) is the approved service provider and its board consists of local volunteers. The company is a not for profit organisation limited by guarantee.

Adria Village now boasts a diverse and multicultural community of people from all over the world!



The name Adria is derived from the Adriatic Sea which is located between Croatia and Italy. The coastal region of Croatia is renowned for its unique landscape, islands and rich history.
