It all began more than 30 years ago. On 10 October 1988, 62 women from all walks of life gathered in a private home in Vienna and decided to form a group with these objectives: Nurture and help to maintain an Australian identity Enable Australian women to meet in a social atmosphere Provide a communication link between different interest groups or occupational groups of Australian women in Vienna, and Provide support to newly arrived Australians. It can be said 30 years later that those objectives still hold up today, except for the reference to "women." The group was named the Australian Women's Group (AWG) and initially it staged garden parties and morning teas. Men did not get a look in until some 13 years later when, in October 2001, the name was changed to OzCon - The Australian Connection and men were formally admitted.
Now in 2020, OzCon has been rebranded to 'Aussies in Austria'. The membership includes men, women and children, families, singles and basically everyone! Whether you are Australian, married an Australian or just have an interest in connecting with Australians, this group is for you. Our group meets for Lunches, Pub nights, Family outings, Hikes, Swims, Bike Rides and much more.
We would love to hear from you, so please connect, join an event and take part!
