InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Canberra

Hello to all Americans in Canberra! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Canberra? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Canberra which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Canberra may be comparatively small with a population of less than half a million, but it still has much to offer. The Australian capital is a completely planned city known for being home to many important federal government institutions such as the High Court and Parliament House, its numerous museums, the abundance of available outdoor activities, and much more! With the bus and light rail services, in addition to the very well-thought-out road network, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the outer districts, which are up to a half-an-hour drive away from Canberra’s center.

Although Canberra has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Canberra, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
