Members assist Members in the Australia Expat Forums

Our trust-based community was developed to help expatriates in Australia swap suggestions and advice on all expat-relevant enquiries, e.g., ʺWill I need special dermatological care for the Australian climate?ʺ or ʺWhat is the general Australian attitude towards non-Anglophone foreigners?ʺ. In a community that’s all about expat living in Australia, from vegemite to Australia Day, the participants of the expat forum Australia can find fellow expats and internationally minded locals to receive trustworthy and up-to-date responses. On the InterNations Expat Forum for Australia, there will always be another expat member to make life abroad easier.

From health care to Australian mentality: The Expat Forum Australia leaves no Question unanswered

If you require even more information on expat topics like housing and household in Canberra or sports and leisure in Sydney, you could also browse our Australia Expat Guide, another useful resource in addition to the expat forums. Moreover, in our World Forum you can talk about international politics, conflict management in an international workplace, the most common issues faced by expats and other general expat issues. However, for expat assistance on all local matters - from health care to Australian mentality - just join the InterNations Australia expat forums.
