    And what about France?

  2. kiwafruit March 11th, 2010 12:52 am

    Yay – Go BUMS! :D

    You forgot about MUK – the Melbourne Ukulele Kollective (and their garishly retina-burningly bright site who hosted the MUF (Melbourne Ukulele Festival) last month.

    And apparently there’s a uke group in Wellington, New Zealand? I saw it on Facebook somewhere…

    Oh, and I think the address for Ukulele Canberra in the Map might need fixing?

    Thanks Al and Claudine :D

  3. terry priest March 11th, 2010 7:32 am

    the address for the Cairns club is wrong,you seem to have the brisbane address there.
    I think you casn get there through

  4. Mark Jackson March 11th, 2010 8:48 am

    Hey Woodie Woodshed, we have two groups in the Hunter Valley now – Newcastle, north of Sydney.

    The Ukastle Ukestra (Newcastle, NSW)


    LakeMacUkestra (Lake Macquarie NSW).

    Both are directed by my good self and are evolving. Contact through my website (

    Does this mean it all gets on the official list?

    Thanks for your good work!


  5. Woodshed March 11th, 2010 7:21 pm

    LVince: Europe will be coming along at some point.

    kiwafruit, terry and Mark: Thanks very much. I’ll make sure they’re added.

    Our group is the Thermaleles of course coming for the city of boiling mud and geysers and general thermal activity! Website to follow.

  8. Justine Pierre March 12th, 2010 9:48 am

    Thank you
    John Cook

  18. kiwafruit February 13th, 2011 10:28 am

    Hi Al,
    Could you please change the address for BUMS to Brisbane, Australia. We have moved to the Coorparoo Bowls Club, but it might be easiest to have just a link to site. We have a “Where is BUMS?” page with address details of monthly meetings, etc.

    Thanks :)

  19. Woodshed February 17th, 2011 11:24 am

    Kiwa and John: Thanks for the info. I’ve made those changes.

  20. Denise March 1st, 2011 6:13 am

  22. Phil Hider March 9th, 2011 11:33 pm

    I’m hoping someone down there can help. I bought a
    Pineapple Concert. Label inside reads: PACIFIC UKULELE Handcrafted in Austrialia. It appears to be made of a form of KOA or Acacia. It’s my best sounding uke. I’m trying to find out who made it and if they can still be contacted.

    Thanks, Phil from “Up Over”.

  23. Jeanette March 19th, 2011 6:33 am

    Is there no-one on the Gold Coast who would like to get together for a ukelele session?????????

  24. Coral Cogzell March 23rd, 2011 11:01 pm

    Is there a ukelele group in the Bundaberg region?
    Also, your map places Byron Bay in Qld. (they wish !)

  25. Georga April 9th, 2011 10:32 pm

Recent guest performers have included members of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brittain, Ralph Shaw, Jim and Liz Beloff, Jim D’Ville, Bosko and Honey, Cameron Murray. Future exciting artists booked.

  43. Unkle Cyril May 31st, 2012 7:42 am

    It would be great if you could insert the Wollongong ukulele group, The Swingaleles, into your list of ukulele clubs. the group has been going since May 2010 and is prominent in the Illawarra area playing many gigs and rockin’ up to uke festivals.
    They have a site on the net:-

  47. iinka August 2nd, 2012 5:11 am

    Heya All,

    Just moved from London to Canberra and am keen to set up a uke group here! I miss the fun of Ukulele Wednesdays at the pub on TCR! There is already URoC, but im looking to set up something a little more relaxed than URoC, with beer, and free lessons & support for newbies, and a wider variety of songs. Obviously not on a night that clashes so that people can go to both if they wish. If you’re interested, drop me an email leigh.bradyUK AT gmail DOT com.

    If I get *any* expressions of interest I’ll get it going! :)

  48. John Chandler August 2nd, 2012 6:18 am

  81. Ginger May 10th, 2014 6:57 am

    Me again! I’ve been updating my uke groups page for fellow ukers embarking on a 3 month camper van round trip Hobart/Cairns. I found a number of groups who have public websites (Yahoo, Facebook, etc) haven’t listed a contact phone number or email address on their sites (not that I could find, anyway!) and consequently, to make an enquiry requires joining the website. When travelling joining multiple websites is not something one always wants to do. So…I’m asking if groups could include a contact on their site for travellers to make a quick enquiry before arriving in your town/city. Thanks…Ginger

  82. Woodshed May 10th, 2014 1:42 pm

    Ginger: Thanks very much for the updates. And have a great roadtrip!

    Just moved to Invercargill, and looking for some uke playmates? Anyone here who would like to meet for a strum, form a club? Please email me. Cheers

  91. Peter van der Stam February 20th, 2015 1:10 am

    To whom it might concern,

    I am wondering why so many club are only to be contacted via “Facebook”
    I hate facebook, because as soon as you have an account your mailbox is flooded with crap of people wanting to be your friend.
    I can find my own friends without facebook.

    SO please Ukelele clubs, make yourselves known without this so called social media.
    I want to play the thing!
    Cheers Peter
    Willoughby, Sydney

  92. Ginger February 20th, 2015 12:26 pm

    @Peter van der Stam. Couldn’t agree with you more! So…to get past the problem I opened a totally fictitious FB account. Wrong name, gender, birthday, place of birth and place of residence. (FB says I was born in Guyana and live in Jersey!). I opened the account over a year ago now and have only had one friend request from someone, of course, I don’t know…as no one can know ‘me’! I get no other messages…except from the 2 friends from the other side of the world that I have let in because they cannot/won’t contact me any other way. Just a thought!

  93. Vanessa February 21st, 2015 12:14 am

    @ Ginger and Peter van der Stam. I find FB to be a wonderful tool to connect with like minded uke people. You can completely control all incoming emails and friend requests. The delete button is your friend. What is the alternative on the www? Any thoughts?

  94. Barbara February 27th, 2015 12:09 am

    Wanting to know if there is a uke club in Hervey Bay/Maryborough region. Wanting to join and learn. Am having no luck finding one locally

  95. Ginger February 27th, 2015 2:25 pm

    @Vanessa, hi, our uke group uses a free Yahoo groups site – Members have access to all our songsheets for download, a post facility, a database for EOIs in activities, a photo section, a membership list, an event calendar, a reminder service which can be set up for regular reminders (e.g. our monthly open mic night) and a facility for polls. Non-members can view our information, including contact details, on the front page without joining. I often get emails or phone calls from travelling users who just want to drop in on their travels. There’s also WordPress which looks good although I haven’t used it…yet! Cheers…Ginger

  96. Ginger February 27th, 2015 2:34 pm

    @Vanessa. Hi again. The friend request is one of my biggest bugbears with FB. If it comes from someone you know slightly…a friend of a friend maybe…it feels churlish to deny even though you know the request is simply to bump up their ‘friends’ numbers. It’s the main reason I opted out of FB under my real name. (Even my son, who knows my false FB name couldn’t find me!) Also, forgot to mention, at Yahoo Groups, members have the option to receive posts individually, as a daily digest, or not at all and just view posts on the website. We have a number of interstate and overseas members who just like to keep up with what we’re doing &/or access our songsheets. Leave you be now! Ginger

  97. Vanessa February 27th, 2015 10:58 pm

    Thank you Ginger. Your information is much appreciated.
