The clan society was formed in Perth after the visit of Dame Flora in 1954 and more than fifty members signed up for the inaugural meeting. Currently there are still six active members who have kept the faith for more than 44 years. There have been several presidents during that time, including members of the Talisker family who gave their name to massive pastoral leases in the northwest of the state and to the massive Lake MacLeod near Carnarvon where salt is mined. Currently the MacLeod of Talisker lives in Western Australia and is a member of the society. The annual round of activities includes a barbeque in the summer, casserole suppers in the winter months, an annual restaurant meal and afternoon teas. Six newsletters are produced each year and members participate in local activities run by other clan societies as well as those orchestrated by the Scottish Heritage Centre of Western Australia. We generally meet in members' homes and enjoy the fellowship of each other's company.
