Auckland Chinese Community Centre was established in 1960
The organization was incorporated on 23 March 1960 under its original name of Auckland Chinese Hall Inc (ACH). Over the ensuing years, ACCC has served the community in Auckland very well by providing facilities and activities to cater to the sporting, cultural and social needs of its members and the wider local Chinese community.
Fast forward to 2020 and there are approximately 180,000 Chinese in Auckland. ACCC is only one of about 350 Chinese community organisations in Auckland with the overwhelming majority being Mandarin-speaking groups originating from mainland China. Under these circumstances, our ACCC members are now mainly descendants of the Cantonese early settlers who have extensively integrated into the mainstream community with a very wide range of occupations plus some recent migrants from Hong Kong and mainland China who wish to participate in our activities.
