Membership

Former Prime Ministers John Howard and Malcolm Turnbull are members of the club.[2]

Women are excluded from membership of the club. In June 2021, around 700 members attended a Special General Meeting of the club to vote on a proposal to allow women to join the club. Seventy-five percent of attending members needed to vote for the proposal in order for it to receive approval. The proposal was defeated when 62 percent voted against allowing women to join.[2]
