The Dickson Tradies


The Dickson Tradies, located in the heart of the Dickson food precinct, is the perfect venue for all occasions. Featuring Essence By Livio - home of The Tradies Legendary Schnitzel - and Bluey’s Café along with The Lounge Bar’s delicious variety of cocktails, boutique beers and tapas, The Dickson Tradies has every craving covered! It doesn’t end with your taste-buds though, with Canberra’s favourite contemporary bands performing all weekend every weekend and promotions, giveaways and special events daily.


The Tradies has been a Canberra institution for over 45 years and operates licensed community clubs in both Dickson and Woden. We’re immensely proud of our history but we are also looking forward to the future, growing and adapting to service the needs of our broadening member base.


With our award-winning Quality Hotels adjacent to each of the clubs we can provide just about everything you are likely to need under the one roof, whether it be a short visit for a meal or a drink or an extended stay over several days. We even own and operate our own fully-equipped gym in Dickson; the Northside Fitness Centre.


Our mission is to provide a modern and progressive club with professional staff that offers the best hospitality, entertainment services and facilities for our members and their invited guests.
