Won Top Four Championship 1967

The 1968 edition of the Australia Cup was played from April to November 1968.

Therefore, the qualification of most clubs was based on achievements in the 1967 season, or on 1968 pre-season competitions.

The above list of qualified clubs is almost complete. Other clubs that qualified will be added as evidence of their participation is uncovered through my research.
