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

Australians in the USA.

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

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 the USA. Therefore, we have extensive experience in meeting the professional needs of Australians moving to the USA.

Importantly, we publicly share information for those considering the move to the USA 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 the USA.

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 the USA.
