During the early 1960’s, due to the political situation in the Middle East, a large number of Armenians migrate to Australia, Canada, and the United States.

Not only do they re-establish their lives and their families, but they also begin the expansion of Homenetmen chapters to new areas. As soon as they were settled, they started organizing various community activities i.e. Sunday School, Scouting and sports including football and basketball.

March 1965 saw the first Homenetmen Sydney branch meeting take place with approximately 40 members. From this meeting 7 members were elected to form our “Antranig Committee”. These members were:

  • Mr Arsen Hekimian - President
  • Mr Berdj Momdjian - Secretary
  • Mr Hagop Kortian - Treasurer
  • Mr Hovhanness Mardoyian – Scout Group Leader
  • Mr George Aposhian - Sports
  • Mr Zaven Sarkissian - Soccer
  • Mr Simon Kurdoghlian – Resources Manager

Homenetmen Australia currently has 5 chapters representing different areas:

  • Antranig (1965): Sydney North Shore
  • Arax (1966): Melbourne
  • Navasart (1973): Sydney Western Suburbs
  • Gamk (1981): Sydney Eastern Suburbs
  • Ararat (1989): Sydney Northern Districts
