If you’re new to New York or looking for a network of Australian and NZ women to connect with, we invite you to join AWNY’s friendly Community team at our monthly Chinwag events on Zoom. We trade tips on living in New York, catch up on the latest goings on around town, and share some laughs.  


AWNY hosts a diverse range of social events, and educational and professional networking opportunities that are open to both members and non-members.

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

You can also sign up for our AWNY newsletter or volunteer on our AWNY committee.

Our Meet & Greet Program

We’ve paused our in-person meet & greet program due to the pandemic, but there’s still plenty going on, like our regular virtual Chinwag events.
If you complete the form below, we will put you in touch with an AWNY member with similar interests, who has experienced the transition of moving to and living in NYC.  They can meet up with you, introduce you to like-minded people, or just be a friendly face at an upcoming event (virtual or IRL).

Miss Aussie coffee?

Feeling stuck and need inspiration?

We have interviewed over 50 Aussie and Kiwi women who are living in New York, at all stages of their life, careers and reasons they moved here. Read through our Faces of AWNY profiles and be inspired by what you can achieve in New York and know that we are here to support you on this adventure.
