Making friends in Sutherlandshire

Recommended Posts

Hi, my partner and I (25 and 27) moved to Sydney in September 2014 and have settled in 'the shire', specifically Caringbah.

 

I'm lucky to work with some great people but none of us live anywhere near eachother to hang out outside of work. It's a bit of an awkward age to meet new people in a completely new place (i.e. no longer in education but also don't have kids to befriend other parents etc.) so hoping to make some friends locally.

 

If anyone is in a similar position, it would be great to hear from you!

I'm in Sutherland Shire, but I'm a much older married mother of two, so probably not who you are wanting to socialise with! Have you tried joining some group exercise groups? If you join up with the Facebook group 'Everything Sutherland Shire' there are some advertised on there, or you could ask if there are any in your area. Alternatively, you could try meet up.com where there are lots of different groups who meet up locally. Otherwise, do you have any hobbies you do that have groups in the area?

Hi,

 

We're in Cronulla and have a few friends in Caringbah/Miranda area (all English).

 

Great area to live, but most people I know are located in areas that make it difficult to meet up. Im lucky to catch up with some friends more than a few times a year!

Hi,

I guess it's a bit too late... but I'll leave the message anyway :)

My partner and I are in the same situation. I'm 28 and he is 30. We just moved to Caringbah.

We don't know people here... We would like to meet someone to hang out with :) and spend some good time

I'm no longer in Sutherland Shire (move back to Scotland a couple of years ago), but have a look at the Facebook group 'Everything Sutherland Shire', or maybe even try Meetup.com. You might find a social group or something like that on there. You could look out for sport groups and things like that, if that's your thing.
