The Australian Community is a 501(c)(3) Public Charity. Our Mission is to connect Australians living in New York through Professional, Social and Charitable initiatives.

Australians in New York.

Based in New York City, we are the preeminant non-profit organization for professional Australians living in New York.

Our member services assist Australians to connect through a private Enterprise Social Network that facilitates 1:1 connections. Most importantly, it also contains the largest private Australian knowledge base in North America.

Over the past decade, The Australian Community has assisted tens of thousands of Australians living in New York and across America. Therefore, we have extensive experience in meeting the professional needs of Australians moving to New York.

Importantly, we publicly share information for those considering the move to New York through our website, social media, and our Book:  Moving to the US for Aussies. First published in 2017, it is the definitive guide for Australians moving to New York.

Whether you are an Australian in New York or another U.S. city, our non-profit services can connect you with other professional Australians in New York.
