KLM Dutch Orange Day 2015 is now a distant memory. After a wet start it turned out to be a great day with over 10,000 people attending. The food stalls did a roaring trade and by all accounts everybody had a great day. We hope to do it all again in 2016 and the  DOD committee invites you to join us at Queensbridge Square in the Melbourne CBD.

The KLM auction netted $1600 for Dutchcare Ltd, an aged care provider which operates in Victoria.

Euro 2016 will be on as well so if Holland gets to the final knock out stage we will be organising Holland Soccer House.

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

I look forward to seeing you in 2016

Tot ziens!

Peter van Duyn
President Dutch Orange Day Inc.

Taste of Holland

We are celebrating Dutch food this year!

Here’s a video from the National Geographic channel featuring many of the foods you’ll find at KLM Dutch Orange Day this year.

Come along on 26 April and get your Dutch food fix!

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.
