What we're about

Hey everyone!

This is the ORIGINAL Social Canberra, a growing social group for people either new to Canberra, or just wanting to get to know more people here to expand their social and/or professional network.


We do weekly meetups: coffee meet ups, bowling, festivals, fortnightly drinks (original), and MUCH MORE on a weekly basis, including weekdays.

We listen to our members, and anything else that group members might suggest, we typically do within the month :)

Within the past 6 months, we have done: Skating, bowling, trampoline, hiking, rockclimbing, iPlay, brunch, drinks, Guild board games, trivia, sports, movies and dinner. This is just the beginning of upcoming bigger events.

Talking about suggestions, we are unique as we have a fully "bottom-up" interactive approach to this group, where we encourage members to message our organisers on our Facebook page.

18-35 years

We have welcomed the recent merger of Canberra Young Professional Socials members, and thank them for their transition. We continue to be the fastest growing social group for this demographic in Canberra on both Facebook and Meetup.

So what are you waiting for? Join our Facebook page as well for details on upcoming events:

Karaoke and Drinks!

Soundbox Karaoke & Bar

So we're meeting at karaoke in Dickson from 8pm and then having a few at Ducks Nuts, getting on the tram/transport to Civic to continue the night!

Gibraltar Falls Hike

Woods Reserve

As requested, a meetup for the Gibraltar Falls walking track. We will meet at Woods Reserve car park for the walk to Gibraltar Falls and back. The return trip is only 2km so it can be done in a little over an hour. There are picnic areas at both ends of the walk so we can either do the full circuit or one way and stop for some lunch! https://australianhiker.com.au/trails/gibraltar-falls-walking-track-act2-3-km/
