Canberra - Post Report Question and Answers

What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?

I have no idea how big the expat community is as it is not really a tight knit group. Like many other posts like Australia, most people make their own fun, travel a lot, and don't really need the expat community to either keep them occupied or help them fit in. We made (and kept) Australian friends and, though we did participate in Embassy sponsored events they were really not a big deal compared to some posts. - Aug 2020
