    Without experience of having lived abroad, I thought it would be hard to get to know other expats. But not with InterNations.

Discover Sydney's Friendly Expat Community!

G'day and a very warm welcome to our expat community in Sydney! We're here to help you overcome any issues you may come across as you relocate to your new home. You'll find answers to questions that may be bothering you, such as, "how good is the healthcare system in Australia?" or "in which district of Sydney should we live?". These are answered by people who have been through exactly what you're experiencing now and who are always glad to help a fellow expat. You'll find that the fascinating and cosmopolitan city of Sydney has so much to offer — there's far more than wonderful beaches and historic landmarks to explore.

What You Can Expect from Your Life in Sydney

Sydney rightly revels in being Australia's largest and most cosmopolitan city, and it's no surprise that it attracts people from across the globe who want to immerse themselves in its rich diversity. People have been starting new lives here since the British arrived on 26 January 26 1788 — a date now celebrated as Australia Day — and the influx of new citizens from across the globe is at the heart of the city's diversity. There's genuinely something for everyone here — the city's oceanside location offers beaches that are perfect for families and are a surfer's paradise; close by are world-renowned icons such as the opera house and Sydney Harbor Bridge; while the thriving business district which employs around 13% of the city's population is right in the center of town, beginning at Circular Quay. Nowhere is this rich diversity more apparent than in its cuisine, and foodies can happily eat their way around the world from Korea to Bavaria, Italy to Laos. Cinema goers, theater-lovers and party people alike are also have many options to choose from.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world.

    When I first attended the Sydney Bar night I was really nervous. But everyone welcomed me and I quickly felt as part of the community.
