About Alliance Française de Toowoomba

The Alliance Française de Toowoomba is a not-for-profit organisation run by a committee of volunteers situated in the heart of the Darling Downs: it was formed in the 1960s by people in the community to promote French language and culture in our region.  Over the years we have offered a host of social, cultural and educational activities - consider however that we form part of a larger network around the world of Alliances. So, if you have an interest in learning more about the French culture, or would like to learn the French language;
