ANZAC Day 2021 New York

Observed on 25 April each year, ANZAC Day was originally devised to honor the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who served in the Gallipoli Campaign during World War I.

Repatriating to Australia: The Survey

Many are wondering “Who, and How Many” Australians in New York are repatriating to Australia due to COVID-19.

Five Leading Indicators of Spring in NYC

For anyone who has lived through a New York winter, the prospect of warmer weather is a welcome joy.  As a public service, here are five leading indicators that spring is just around the corner in NYC.

Aussie Businesses in NYC – and where to find them: Sweat Yoga

After a very positive response following a series of articles featuring Aussie Cafés in NYC, we will be posting a series featuring Australian small businesses operating in New York.

We want our readers to learn about these businesses, where they are located, as well as share the personal stories of their owners.

We spoke with Wade Helliwell, the 6’11’ Australian professional Basketball player at his studio Sweat Yoga in New York City.

Australians in Startups: Catherine Jackson

When Catherine Jackson moved to NYC, the need to remember great places, and constant requests from friends for recommendations on places to go, gave her the inspiration for her App:  MyFavePlaces.

We sat down with Catherine over a a flat white and asked her to share her story.

Australians in Startups: Brett Howlett

Sleepless nights as an advertising executive would lead Brett Howlett not to the medicine cabinet but to founding his own company, You Are What You Sleep.

While Brett’s e-commerce business model is thoroughly modern, the company has deep roots in Australia’s heritage as a wool-growing nation.

Australians in Startups: Cara Zelas

When educator Cara Zelas and her husband got a dog for the first time, they expected companionship and love. What they couldn’t have predicted was that Little Dude would put Cara on the path to entrepreneurship.

Based on Little Dude’s work as a therapy dog in New York City, Cara has developed a six-book series and literacy based curriculum that teaches children 3 to 7 years of age about kindness, manners, feelings, empathy, respect, and courage.

What would happen if The Australian Community appeared on Shark Tank?

If you are not familiar with Shark Tank, the TV show features Entrepreneurs pitching highly successful business owners on why they should invest in their company.

Theoretically speaking, if you could successfully pitch the Sharks on the value proposition of our organization to Australian Ex-pats, then attracting new members to join The Australian Community should be a no-brainer.

Our first networking event of 2017 included a private shopping experience on Fifth Avenue, NYC!

It was a packed house with members attending an exclusive networking event and private shopping experience at Microsoft’s Flagship Store on Fifth Avenue.
