Due to unforeseen issues with the funding and organisation of Dutch Orange Day there will be no DOD 2016. We hope to have these issues resolved in order to be able to stage a DOD event in 2017 and will keep you informed via this website.

For more up to date information please follows us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Unfortunately, Dutch Orange Day (DOD) 2016 will not happen this year. The former DOD Committee members are still trying to organise something for 2017. This year we will NOT have our regular Day on Queens-bridge Square

That DOD 2016 does not happen has been informally announced a while ago. This is an official posting.

Thank- you for supporting us over the many years.
If you are interested in volunteering, have ideas to share, know individuals who wish to be involved, please contact Heico Wesselius at wesseliush@gmail.com. Thank-you!

There is an Oranje Feest on Saturday night (April 23, Ormond Hall)! Please book your ticket(s) via EventBrite.

Volunteers wanted


On Sunday 26th of April (2015), we will celebrate the 11th edition of Dutch Orange Day (DOD) at Queensbridge Square, Melbourne.  The previous 10 editions were wonderful due to the assistance of the many volunteers. We wish to thank them again for their contributions. The eleventh Dutch Orange Day is again in need of volunteers.

If you or your friends (you don’t have to be Dutch) are interested in helping to plan, organise and manage this event, please send a brief email to dutchorangeday@hotmail.com outlining your interests and experiences.

Don’t forget to include your contact details (phone, email).

We look forward to hear from you!

See you at Queenbridge Square

Melbourne – 26 April 2015

Dutch Orange Day 2015 will take place on 26 April 2015 at Queensbridge Square on Southbank in Melbourne. Come down on Public Transport or do it the Dutch way and come on your bike!

Talking about bicycles, did you know that Dutch Cargo Bike has a new website? They import a huge range of cargo bikes (bakfietsen), as well as commuter bikes and accessories.

Check them out at www.dutchcargobike.com.au. Both websites for Dutch Cargo Bike and Dutch Orange Day were developed by Scout Studio, a web and graphic design studio based in North East Victoria. If your organisation is after a new website, app or identity, make sure to contact Scout Studio for a chat.
