What we're about

Public Group

We are a fun group of young professional American friends of friends mostly between the ages of 25-35ish who have been working and living here around 1-4 years. Most of us are expats on working here on 457 visas while some of us have PR or are on a working holiday.

We organize events every few weeks from 50-2000 people. Friend us on facebook to get all the updates (

Most of our events are aimed at young professionals, but we've also got an "American Families in Sydney" group on facebook (

We like to get together and have a good time celebrating all things American and or anything that can be used as an excuse to party.

It is always fun meeting others who share something in common that you can talk with about things like college basketball or American politics and they actually understand.
