Looking to meet other Brits in Melbourne

Recommended Posts

Guest celta

Hi, i've recently moved to Melbourne permanently to live with with my Aussie boyfriend. Loving Melbourne and have plently of Aussie friends but would really love to meet some fellow Poms before I lose my english accent forever. Plus I miss the cynical British humour and endless chats about the weather!! I live near St Kilda so surely there must others about?? Look forward to hearing from them

Hi Celia,

 

Myself & OH will be moving too Melbourne in August (can't wait!) We've even been discussing moving to St Kilda or nearby aswell! We'll be up for meeting people when we get over, to be honest we're a little nervous that we won't make any friends!

A bit of background on us : i am 29 & in the motor trade & my OH is 28 & is a teacher.

Good with everything down there.

 

Karl.

Hi there, in a similar situation moved over last year from London with Aussie boyfriend, living in St Kilda so would be up for a few local drinks. Looking forward to meeting some friendly Poms.

Hi,

Myself and my partner have been here for almost 6 months and live in Point Cook, it would be good to meetup. Do you think the city would be good for everyone? As it's prob the easiest place most of us can get to as people replying seem to live all over.
