The Maroubra & Districts Chamber of Commerce is one of the oldest Chambers in Australia. Over the years we have made some outstanding contributions to the local business community. We have a continuing (and so far successful) campaign opposing Randwick Council’s attempts to saturate the area with parking meters. We have monthly “gatherings” for local business networking.
