    Without experience of having lived abroad, I thought it would be hard to get to know other expats. But not with InterNations.

InterNations — A Community for American Expats on the Gold Coast

Hello to all Americans living on the Gold Coast! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats nearby? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars on the Gold Coast 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: Australia’s fastest-growing city has a lot on offer for expats. The popular tourist destination is a coastal city known for its sunny subtropical climate, surfing beaches, high-rise dominated skyline, theme parks, nightlife, and much more! With the available bus services, light-rail system, and 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 suburbs such as Beechmont or Willow Vale, for example, which are a 30 to 40-minute commute away from the Gold Coast’s center.

Although the Gold Coast 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 on the Gold Coast, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.

An amazing community is waiting for you!
