Christmas Day can be a lonely occasion if you are a long way away from family and friends.
The event is open to everyone - singles, couples and families. If you have the time available, you can attend for part or all of the event.
We also host free Living, Working and Networking in Sydney events on the second Wednesday of every month. See all upcoming events on the right hand side of every page of the Newcomers Network website.
Karine will be personally attending and if the weather turns bad please telephone Karine to find out where the group has moved to. All children are welcome.
