Meet local people

Meet local people

There are many ways to meet locals. You can use websites and apps (such as Meetup), attend popular art exhibitions and cafés or join student networks.

Finding where the locals spend time is one thing, but building a genuine friendship can take time. We recommend choosing an ongoing activity that you are interested in and attending on a weekly basis.

Meetup is a website that allows you to find different sporting events and groups, based on your interests or hobbies. From casual weekend soccer matches to Dragon Boat teams, this is a great way to be active and meet new people. There are many different Meetups and most of them are free. 

Sport is another great way to meet new people and Melbourne locals love their sport. The SportsHosts website helps you find other sports fans. Experience a game and enjoy game-day activities such as food and drinks. Sport is a great way to connect with the local culture and following your team’s progress means you will always have something to talk about with your new friends.
