Tips and Advice on Australia from Your Fellow New Zealand Expats

Obviously, expat life in Australia goes well beyond shipping your belongings and taking care of red tape. Socializing with fellow New Zealanders is an important facet of living abroad and can be a huge stepping stone in getting to know the Australian mentality and way of life. New Zealanders in Australia are a part of our community, calling cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, and many others home. You can use InterNations to look for fellow New Zealanders in Canberra, for example.

Wondering where to shop for New Zealand delicatessen, want to discuss your national team's latest match, or simply talk to someone in your native language? Become a member of the Australian InterNations Community!

  • Our network is the best place to meet expats from New Zealand.
  • On the Australia Expat Forums, you can get competent answers to all your expat-related questions: how to find a babysitter fluent in your mother tongue, where to get pavlova in Canberra, etc.
  • The InterNations Places database for Australia has information on the nearest New Zealand embassy and many other institutions.

From Queensland to New South Wales, you can meet supportive and friendly New Zealand expats in Australia on InterNations.

    When I first attended the Sydney Bar night I was really nervous. But everyone welcomed me and I quickly felt as part of the community.
