Kangaroo Valley Committee

Established 1959

In 1958 Sir Lorimer Dods (co-founder of Children's Medical Research Institute) visited Kangaroo Valley to raise much-needed funds for CMRI. At that time, Dorothy Brown was involved in starting the committee as President, and began catering for special events in the local area, which the comittteee continues to do today.

The committee also hold an Annual Melbourne Cup Luncheon and show off their creative side in millernary.


"We really appreciated sharing our 50th anniversary with Professor Roger and Dr Helen Reddel. Roger inspired us all by his insight into the past, the present and the future role of CMRI."
