We are particularly interested in expanding our knowledge of the Sydney community, since we have recently opened a new office right next to the train station. We know that the area is a melting pot of different cultures and is rapidly expanding, so we would love to find new ways to help people riding this wave of prosperity. We are also eager to meet people at local events and group meetings, so please let us know if there is anything local happening that we can be a part of. We would love to expand the reach of the Immigration Lounge to cover subjects that the public will find interesting, so any suggestions are always helpful!
