The InterNations Expat Community in Melbourne: Thriving and Welcoming

G'day, and welcome to the InterNations Melbourne Community. In recent years, the size and popularity of Melbourne has grown to rival Sydney as the cultural capital of Australia; theater, art, fashion, sports, and unique festivals ensure there's plenty to pack in to your new life here. The surrounding area of the Yarra Valley provides spectacular scenery, while the city is packed with all the modern conveniences you could ask for. We know you'll have questions and we know you want to find out all you can about your new home, so we've provided detailed guides all about finding a house, choosing a career and navigating the healthcare system. Don't forget, our expat members are here to answer all your queries, from, "what's the best wine tasting tour?" to "when's the best time to visit the hot springs?". We have created a community especially to make sure you enjoy your new life in Melbourne to the fullest. It's reassuring to know that no matter what happens, you won't be alone!

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Hong Kong or Shanghai.

Active Living for Expats in Melbourne

With cricket, surfing, beach, volleyball, and rugby sporting favorites, there's plenty to keep active residents busy, or if you're more of a spectator, you may prefer to soak up the atmosphere instead. Throughout the year there are also a number of festivals celebrating Melbourne's wine and food industry; get involved in the Good Food and Wine Show, visit the Queen Victoria Night Market and taste all the delights at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. For job seekers, Melbourne's economy is strong and hosts the headquarters of many corporations. Main areas of employment include ICT, life sciences, education, healthcare, and finance. With nine universities and half of the country's bio-tech companies based here, the city is particularly exciting for researchers and scientists. The other great industry of Melbourne is of course, tourism; around 20 million visitors a year contribute to a thriving, rich tourist culture. Of course this means event planners, caterers, and hoteliers will be in good company. Take a look at our guide to working in Melbourne for comprehensive information.

    I love the idea of going out with other expats here in Melbourne and exploring the nightlife this city has to offer.
