Networks, Groups and Communities in Brisbane

Networks, Groups and Communities

 

This page links to other websites to help you network in Brisbane, find a group that may be of interest or discover a community to join.

We are always pleased to publish the details of other expatriate/newcomer groups to help newcomers network as quickly as possible – so please send any suggestions or links to us brisbane@newcomersnetwork.com

Remember, our role is to Welcome you to Queensland and connect you with existing resources (because we are a NETWORK), so if you know some useful information, share it with us and we can let more people know how to find new friends and networks in Queensland.
