Sydney social group wanted!!

Recommended Posts

Guest Solum

Hey everyone!

I have not yet arrived in Sydney (only first week of December) but thought it could be a good idea to socialize over here in the forums and get to know people.

Would be great to meet for drinks!

Ciao

Hey Solum and everyone, I'm also arriving in December. I'm coming on my own on a 457 visa. I've never been to Aus and don't know anyone, so I'm both excited and terrified at the same time! Moving to the Manly area to start with. It'd be nice to find some beer buddies, so hopefully I can meet up with some of you.

Hi everyone, just came across this forum and love all the social chat! I'm moving from London on my own, and hardly know anyone in Sydney so would love to meet up for drinks or coffee if there's anything going on in December. I'm 32, work in retail, love shopping, films, socialising and sport...and can't wait for a new life in Sydney! :)

Hello everybody!!! What a great little group!! I'm also moving to sydney on my own in january. I'm 31 but afraid I'm not from gloucester! Would love to meet up once I arrive as I too will hardly know anyone over there!

 

I also noticed there are a few fellow nurses on here. I'm coming over on working holiday visa & signed up to nursing agency HCA (hoping that it will lead to something more permanent)! Slightly nervous but mostly excited!!

Hi Kelly and Sarah, Neil & Lucy, and anyone else I have missed!!

 

Welcome to the forum! You are all going to love Sydney, I have been here 7 months now and its definitely the best decision I have made!!

Fingers crossed on getting the visa soon Kelly, you will be here in no time!!

 

So I have been promising to arrange another get together for months now, so I thought I should really try and make an effort now with so many people now on this thread!!

 

I know some of you aren't here yet (and so may miss this one - sorry :-( but I promise there will be more!!) - but for the guys who are/will be around, I have discovered that the Pyrmont Bridge hotel has a weekly pub quiz on Wednesday nights, which could be great for a giggle (and the chance of winning $150 too!) - and for anyone up for a challenge or just very hungry, they also have a 'Man or Mouse' challenge, which on Wednesdays is a 'Monster American style pulled pork sandwich' - they do have normal size food too, with $10 meals!

 

So let me know if you are keen on the idea of testing your knowledge or eating mountains of pulled pork and will see what we can arrange!! - Also let me know what dates you can do (obviously wednesdays only for this!!)

 

But if anyone has any other ideas for a meetup, feel free to add your suggestions!

 

Claire

Hi all,

 

I've been here in Sydney for 6 months. Finally got a flat, job etc and now need a girly group to hang out with! Give me a shout if anyone is in living in city. I'm here with the boyfriend who seems to have made lots of work mates! I'm happy to help any new peeps who are heading to Sydney. I seem to have spent all my 6 months eating out in restaurants and know some good places! X

Hi everyone. New to the site but liking what I see! Been in Sydney just under a month with my boyfriend James. I've started work but fairly limited on the social options there! We're both definitely up for meeting some new people. Pub quiz sounds good.... Jen

Hi all...my visa is approved, flight booked and all set for arrival in Sydney next Sunday (24th Nov)...I would love to meet up if there is anything happening in the next couple of weeks. The pub quiz option sounds great - let me know if there is a definite date for this. Looking forward to the Sydney sunshine! :)

Hi All,

 

Welcome to all the new guys on the thread, great to hear from you all! and hello again to everyone else!!!

 

So... I'm thinking PJ O'Briens in the city - at the Grace Hotel on King Street - they also do a pub quiz, every Tuesday from 6.30, with a Pizza and a Pint for $18. Thought this would be a little more central for everyone than the Pyrmont (maybe next time!)

 

Now, I know some people aren't here yet, so apologies again! (pyrmont next time!!), but for those who are here, and Kelly arriving very soon!, how is everyone fixed for Tuesday 3rd December?? say 6pm at PJ's?

Hi Claire

 

I can do next Tuesday. I will be at work that day (in northern beaches) so probably won't make it for 6, but definitely for 7pm, so might have skip the quiz, but the pizza and pint sounds good!
