InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Melbourne

Hello to all Americans in Melbourne! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Melbourne? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Melbourne 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: Melbourne offers a great quality of life. The state capital of Victoria is a quite cosmopolitan city known for its street art, gardens and parks, markets, and much more! With the comprehensive transportation network with ferries, buses, and trains as well as one of the world’s largest tram systems, 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 (called suburbs in Australian English), which are a short drive or a somewhat lengthier commute away from Melbourne’s center.

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