The Australian Community is a 501(c)(3) Public Charity, and our Mission is to connect Australians living in the USA through social, professional and charitable services.

We are a U.S. Public Charity, but formed on 2011 by Australians in New York.  We are also the largest non-profit in the United States by Australian membership. We assist Australians living across the United States, and moving to America from Australia through our social, professional and charitable initiatives.

Since our inception in 2011, The Australian Community has assisted tens of thousands of Australians living in New York, the Northeast, California, Pacific Northwest, and all across the USA.

Most importantly, we publicly share information through our website, social media and our Book:  Moving to the US for AussiesFirst published in 2017, it is the definitive guide for Australian expats living in New York and other U.S. States.

Moreover, if you are an Australian living in America, our Private Member Network provides knowledge and professional connections to overcome the challenges of living in the U.S. - no matter where you live.

Whether you are an Australian in New York, or an Aussie in another U.S. city, our non-profit services overcome many of the challenges faced by Australians in New York and the USA.
