Another way to meet like-minded locals is to participate in volunteering efforts. Volunteering Australia is a great place to start looking at opportunities which are offered in your local area and it’s not limited to charity efforts. Volunteering could be at a sports stadium, major tourist event, or convention centre. Corporate volunteering is not only a great way to meet locals, but could add great experience to your resume as well. More information will be available during your on-site orientation.
