Australian Koi Association

Welcome to the Australian Koi Association, a club formed in 1981 with just 37 members who had a common interest in koi and a diversity of preferences for types of koi.

We now have hundreds of members and an active program of meeting nights, shows and auctions.

We have developed close links with other interstate and international koi organisations and koi judges.

New members are always welcome!

Changes to AKA auction sizes and types
The AKA has made several changes to improve the quality of koi sold at our auctions.

Commencing at our June 17th auction, the minimum size acceptable will be increased to 75 mm, up from the current 50 mm. Commencing at the same auction, all non-metallic white koi (shiro muji) and all non-metallic red koi (aka muji), will be banned at our auctions.

Any koi presented that does not meet these new requirements will not be allowed to be sold and will return home with their owner. It is hoped these by introducing these changes that in time AKA’s Auctions will improve and the quality level of koi will be greatly improved.

  Show results, including the last few years of results for our Large Koi Show, Young Koi Show, Tategoi of the Year and Dave Pogson Memorial Trophy are available on the News page.
