I am an Indian living in Australia for 11+ years. I started “Indians in Australia” facebook page in 2011 and around the same time I founded Mediatimes blog which currently attracts thousands of users every month.

In the end, if you’re new or planning to make Australia your home then don’t just look for the Indian community but also try to mingle with Australian culture. I love this comment below from Divyan George Varghese on Quora.
“When you make the conscious decision to relocate to a new country, it is important that you are consciously willing to adapt to that particular culture and to try and blend in. All this can be done without letting go of your own cultural identity.”
