How close-knit is the expat community in this area? How do I get involved with it?
Many expatriates assimilate into the local community rather than staying in close knit-groups. However, there are some newcomer groups that expats can join - for example, the Newcomers and Friends Association or the Australian American Association.
Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?
Families will often network through their children's schools by involving themselves in sports, fund-raisers and other activities. Other popular ways of making social connections outside of work include attending sporting events and visiting the local hotel or pub. In summer, beach and water-based activities, such as sailing and swimming, are popular social scenes. Special interest day tours to the wineries are another way to explore Adelaide’s surrounding areas and meet people with similar interests.
Where can I meet other singles in this city?
Professional singles often socialize in bars and pubs after work hours and there are nightclubs in city and suburban locations. There are several reputable singles networking associations that arrange evening and weekend activities such as dinners at restaurants, sightseeing and touring that provide opportunities for expat singles to meet other single professionals in Adelaide - try the Events for Singles website below for a listing of local groups.
Are there any unique networking opportunities for accompanying partners?
Many expatriate partners become involved in volunteer and community work, such as the "Friends of the National Parks," "Friends of the Art Gallery of South Australia" and "Friends of the Heysen & Other Walking Trails." Each of these organizations provide opportunities for volunteer work whilst learning more about Adelaide and networking with other expats and Australians.
