Meetups, Social and Clubs in Queensland

Looking to meet new people or run a team and need some more players, or part of a club? Migrating to Australia can be difficult. Having meetups, joining sports teams or clubs can be a great way to build your support network and build a community for new comers and long termers alike.

There is nothing better than a catch up with people who know what you are going through! Whether it is the pub, a picnic, day out on the field or the park with the kids let us know!

Having a meet up with fellow ex pats or have you had a meet up and would like to share your photos? Please fill in the form below.
