THE BASTION OF
We follow in the intellectual tradition of great Australian leaders, such as
Robert Menzies and John Howard, and international leaders
such as Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.
As a club, we believe in standing against the ever increasing leviathan of the
state and in defending civil society and those fundamental rights, considered
classically liberal but conservative in the Anglosphere: free enterprise, freedom
of assembly, belief, speech and the defence of property rights. We value the
inheritance of Western Civilization; the rule of law, the constitution, the family
and the Judeo-Christian values that have underpinned it.
We are not aligned with any political party. As such, we are independent
in developing and advocating Conservative ideas.
We provide our members the opportunity to meet fellow students of a centre-right
persuasion. Members cultivate political skills and develop an intellectual and
philosophical grounding in the context of centre-right Australian politics. Throughout
the year, we hold numerous functions, social events and policy symposiums with
prominent conservative MPs, business leaders, journalists, writers and academics.
