  • Brad brought over an Aussie dictionary when he moved to America. We would like to suggest a meetup for drinks, along with a friendly team competition to test our knowledge of Aussie slang! Brad and I would be happy to do a little prep work for it. No doubt we can all argue the results over drinks! ;) We'd like to suggest meeting at the Ginger Man, but the Dog and Duck Pub might be a good option too...?

    I'm hosting a tennis BBQ next Sat. It's not just for players! It's a BBQ, but some tennis watching and festivities instead of a pool! All Aussies are invited :) $5 all you can eat and drink for 3 hrs. I haven't opened this up on other meetups, like escapades, but that is going to happen soon. I have 30 to 50 people coming so far- 30 players... so plus guests...

    Hi all, i have been to Austin a few times before and would like to spend a year living here. what is the job market like and can anyone shed some like on it. cheers

      I've found it pretty good, especially if you're in tech. Hardest part I found was moving to a new city and not knowing anyone, not having the contacts.

      Hey everyone, I'm a Keller Williams Realtor here in ATX, specializing in the southwest marketplace. Originally from Boston, 8 years in Miami, and 4 of those where running boat races with my Aussie tennis pro friends there. I run the Austin Dog Walk Meetup, a tennis meetup, a Patriots fan meetup, and am a sponsor in the austin beer run club. Point is, Aussies want to love Austin? Move to the right places, understand having an awesome life here. Boy would I like to help! Just private message me. I'll give all the advice I can, even if you don't need a realtor.

    This might sound strange, but I'm applying for Australian citizenship by descent, and I need a "professional" who is an Aussie that lives in the states. Would anyone be willing to help me out?
