We are a group of Australian, New Zealander and South African expats living and working in San Francisco and the Bay Area/Silcon Valley. The purpose of this group is to socialise (or is that socialize) with each other and share our experiences of being an expat in the USA. The meetups include BBQs, social gatherings at bars and restaurants, celebration of cultural holidays (Australia Day, ANZAC Day, Waitangi Day) and getting together to watch sporting events. The group is open to members of all ages. As well as expats, we also welcome those that may have temporarily lived in Aus/NZ/SA and miss the local culture.

Note: The mailing list for this group is turned off, so you will not receive any spam. This group will never send you commercial offers or any email not related directly to organization of an event. If you are a business person and would like to post a message or offer to the group, then please use the message board to do so. Attempting to email commercial offers directly to group members will result in you being reported to Meetup for spam and banned from the group.
