What we're about


South Auckland Socials is all about social gatherings for peeps from the South Auckland area wanting to make friends, go out, try different activities and expand their social circle.

We aim to hold a variety of meetups along the way that should suit everybody at some stage, from hiking, dinners, brunches, caving, BBQ’s, movies, coffee, kayaking, cooking, and any other suggestions that you guys might have.

Whatever your walk of life, age, nationality, culture, work-a-holic, single, couple or family, pick an event and come along some time.

On behalf of SAS, we’d love to see you at a meetup soon.

Mel and Jake Barker (organisers)


We are not a business and run this meetup as a social fun group only. We happily pay the annual fees ourselves and will organise events whenever we are able. We take safety seriously and do not encourage the exchange of phone numbers or personal details between members unless they personally feel safe to do so.

Being a small group, the main organisers will remain as Mel and Jake with Dee as an event organiser. On occasion, one or other of us may post an event on each others behalf. Rest assured, if Jake posts a girls only event on Mel or Dee's behalf, he will not be attending the event himself and vice versa should Mel or Dee post a lads only event on Jake's behalf.

We are still relatively new to meetups so please allow us some leeway and forgive us if we make the occasional mistake.
