From the Saturday afternoon footy and night dance, community support and just an evening with friends playing card and board games Aussies love to get together for a laugh.
And it is still the case even in our fast paced society, there are clubs to cater for all tastes of activity allowing for the development of new friends.
We can find new friends, or a new companion if we have lost our dear loved one, with new communication options including, dare we say it, the internet!
Becoming involved with groups or just visiting popular local or faraway landmarks and attractions can give us the opportunity to start talking to people and exchange contact details.
Join over 300,000 regular members interested in a huge variety of topics, hobbies and interests.
