Australian Women in New York (AWNY) is a dynamic group of women of all ages and backgrounds who have a connection to Australia and New Zealand. Established in 1999 by the American Australian Association, AWNY provides a forum for women to come together to network and share experiences to make life in New York as rewarding as possible.

AWNY is operated by a volunteer committee. We host a diverse range of social events and educational and professional networking opportunities that provide a sense of community and connection for thousands of women in the Big Apple.

In 2015, Australian designer Phil Smith created the new AWNY logo. The colors blend American navy and red (which are Australian colors too), with the definitive Australian colors of ochre and sky blue. Magenta is for the womanly spark an Aussie ‘gal’ brings across to New York with her. The star itself represents the diversity of the people that form our AWNY community.

A program of the American Australian Association

American Australian Association is the largest non-profit organization devoted to strengthening relations between the United States and Australia and was founded by Sir Keith Murdoch in 1948.

Corporate and individual membership to the American Australian Association automatically entitles women to join AWNY. Members enjoy discounted rates on AWNY events and access to a wide range of other AAA functions, resources and news.

To become a member, visit the AAA membership page.

  1. I have thoroughly enjoyed looking through the website. I discovered it via a link to the wonderful article about the Australian war brides. I am an Australian woman (singer/songwriter married to an American musician) living in New Orleans. I was wondering if there is a sister organisation here because I’ve been living here for two years and haven’t met any other Aussie women living here yet.

      1. Hello, just wanted to let you know am a Brit who grew up in Perth, Applecross actually, now living in the Asheville NC area. I bake British goods commercially but also offer Aussie goods as well. You can find me on etsy at aBritishBaker.etsy.com and aBritishBaker.com. Would you let your members know please? Thank you.
