GOA is a social group for ladies (majority of members 25 - 35) who enjoy exploring Art Galleries and Interior Decorating Markets whilst expanding social circle.
Key activities range from - Interior Decorating DIY shows, Art/Fashion creations, Empowering Speeches, Eat Outs, Performing Arts and other 'I Love Melbourne' events...
Winter Outdoor Activity - Introduction to Rowing
Summer Outdoor Activity - Paddle Boarding and Beginner's Surfing.
The Group Organiser started learning how to surf last Summer and even though she's not a strong swimmer she loves learning the ropes of it! Ladies whether a beginner or what not who wish to tick this off their bucklist as 'things to try' don't hesitate when the summer arrives to suggest 'beginner surf lessons' as a group event for next summer which is only two seasons away.
In the meanwhile, we hope to find fantastic cultural Melbourne events which draw your enthusiasm to attend and enjoy.
International travellers or those from interstate also welcomed to join and explore Melbourne from the friendly viewpoint of locals.
The maximum number of members for this group is 50, inactive profiles are removed for new members to be added to attend current events. Memberships are rotating so if your profile is removed you may rejoin when there is an event you'd like to attend. This helps to maintain a simply manageable and active group.

Group Background for History Buffs
This group was formed in April 2014 by a Female Nurse, who worked long hours and wanted to make time to explore good food, drinks and the exciting nightlife in the city with new female friends. After dancing to several meetups with the group, friendships were initiated and connected outside of Meetup and hence there weren't any meetups posted here for a while. As the busy schedule of the Nurse grew, she departed from the Meetup Website and it is now organised by the group's own member.
A bit about the Current Organiser
Hi, I'm Rosie, I grew up in Melbourne and only started discovering and really appreciating Melbourne's fantastic art galleries and exhibitions a few years ago - thanks to Broadsheet. I notice Meetup already has great massive groups for nightlife and drinking and so I don't feel to replicate that (leave that to the experts) and around in the same city there weren't any active daylight meetup groups for ladies with an interest in Art Galleries/Interior Decorating/Craft ..... So here it is ....it's a small group but very much largely dedicated to the appreciation of this and to the Melbourne Art Scene . This group is not fixed on weekly/monthly programs. If you are excited about something to do with Art & Design/Gorgeous DIY Interiors - feel free to let us know. Also I've received several request from ladies interested in Beginner's Surfing - Thank You- we can look into this next Summer as I'm no fan of icy waters this winter. Alternatively, if you are interested in rowing in Winter - let me know. As a welcome to new members, I'm happy to organise dinner/drinks in the city soon. Feel free to message me if you're interested. PS - if you don't drink - you're very welcome to come along and meet us.
