News, Articles & Knowledge

As a Public Charity our Mission includes sharing the collective knowledge of our organization.  Our main knowledgebase is contained within our Private Network, but we also share some of that knowledge through articles.

Attend our Monthly Events

Our monthly social gatherings and professional networking events are an opportunity for Australians to meet in New York and share their experience.

Save on Foreign Exchange

Our Members transfer millions of dollars every year for business and personal needs.  Based on this volume, a preferred rate on FOREX transfers has been negotiated with OFX (OzFOREX)

If there is a better Foreign Exchange rate out there, we have not seen it!

Quickly Access US Credit - even from Australia!

One of the main challenges facing thousands of Australians moving to the US is how to access US credit, and begin to build a US Credit Score.

The Australian Community has introduced a program where Aussies can quickly access US credit - even before they arrive in the US!

Connect with our Private Knowledgebase

Powered by Microsoft Yammer, The Australian Community has built the largest private Australian knowledgebase in the United States.

It connects 1,000 of our members through more than two dozen groups!

Moving to the US for Aussies

Have you ever wondered if USCIS handed out a book to anyone arriving in the US on a work visa on all of the traps for young players, how much of an asset it would be?

Well, wonder no more because The Australian Community is producing a book “Moving to the US for Aussies”

Connect with our Mentoring Initiative

Our Mentoring Initiative inside our private social network assists Australians living in New York who are looking to kick their career into high gear.

It's no secret that moving up the corporate ladder in the US is 50% what you know and 50% who you know!

The 2018 Creative Challenge Art Competition

The Challenge for creative Australians living in New York is to create a body of work – using any medium – that encompasses three elements: Australia, Community and New York.

If you are an Australian artist living in the Greater New York Area, you can review the competition rules, and details of the $500 cash prize for first place.

Our Charitable Mission

As a 501(c)(3) Public Charity, The Australian Community supports other charitable organizations who are aligned with the philanthropic nature of Australians.

Our annual #KoalaGiving fundraiser is an example of how our members are giving back to the broader New York community.
