ABOUT AUSDenver

WELCOME

AUSDenver connects people and businesses of Metro Denver, Colorado and Australia in order to create a community where Australians can land, learn, launch, and live.

AUSDenver has a rich and enduring history as a social connector for Australians living in Metro Denver. Founded in the late 1990s, AUSDenver has provided social connections through events and information sharing for over 25 years. Cornerstone events include our annual Australia Day, ANZAC Day and Christmas drinks events, joined more recently by the Koalarado Conversations event series.

While AUSDenver’s community has evolved and changed since its founding, what has remained constant is our commitment to serving all Australians in Colorado, providing both a landing pad and ongoing social and business connections within our community.

Our vision is to be the leading, trusted organization promoting strong bilateral connections between Australia and Metro Denver, Colorado.

We are guided by our values:
- Inclusivity
- Respect
- Mateship
- Support
- Collaboration
- Professionalism

AUSDenver is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors.
