Polish community in Sydney, Australia

I am planning a trip to Poland (and Russia) sometime in 2008 and am interested in meeting, or finding out more, about Poland from Polish people. I live in Sydney and met some Polish guys last year but other than that I have no real knowledge of Polish people in Sydney. If anyone knows or has any information about a Polish community in Sydney or any Polish events that might be held throughout the year - that would be great. Planning a trip is fun, researching about a place is also really interesting, but getting information first hand would be even better! Cheers!

lol

I can just see how that conversation went.

Yeah mate. We don't have cars, we ride around on Kangeroos. We put Roo bars on the front of 'em, just in case we have a crash.

Phones? That you can carry around with you? Gee, mate, you yanks are so advanced.

We use the bush telegraph. :)

I don't think furry even knows. The only thing I have to say about Aus is...its freakin aussome!!I visited the Perth area and had a fantastic time. Friendly bunch and fun to party with. I wish our homeless played didgeridoo's :)

It's just soooo far away :) I'd love to go back for a vacation.

We definitely have mobile phones - too many it seems sometimes. And I was in China a couple of years ago - and every man, woman and child has one over there - so I guess we are kind of like them!

I would actually really enjoy a winter Christmas one year but have to say I am definitely a beach/summer girl and love the fact that it's so hot/warm all year round in Sydney.

So, there's a club in Ashfield that could be kinda cool. Pawel, I don't suppose you know of any types of events or things that they might put on?!

No i dont but here is there number 9798 7469
Were about are you from (close to ashfield) because there is one in blacktown i heard but have no idea...........

Thanks for that!

The club in Ashfield would be much better because I am in the eastern suburbs - Blacktown is a very long way away for me.

Can keep you posted if/when I find out about anything 'Polish' that might be coming up if you like....

No sorry hon - I am 29 yrs old - just a TOUCH too old for what you are after! I have no doubt though that there are pretty 18 yr old Polish girls in Sydney - just a matter of finding them! Will give this Polish club a call at some stage this week and find out what's going on.

Just quickly as well - I know that Warsaw is obviously one place to visit in Poland - but any advice as to other good places? Where do you plan on going?

I just found this website as well - it gives links to lots of other Polish community websites both in NSW as well as all over Australia - although contact details are in Canberra, ACT: polhistinst.org.au/index (just put the www in front - the forum rules do not letting me post this with the 'www' at the front of the address though - spam issues apparently)

I am yet to find a Polish restaurant in Sydney though - would like to try some Polish food. Does anyone have any recommendations?!

Those dances sound like fun too - do they get many people?! Is there traditional dancing?!

Here is another one - it is a website for the Polish school in Randwick, Sydney:

being from melbourne i am not sure what is available up in sydney but the polish clubs (like community centre's) usually have a restaurant area.

there is a restaurant in melbourne that is called "borsch, vodka and tears" if you are ever down this way.

there is also a polish deli at the vic market.

hey king, there are a few polish deli's around Melbourne, not just the one at the market, there is also a restaurant somewhere near Upway i think.

What a fabulous name for a restaurant!! "borsch, vodka and tears" - love it!

Is there a big Polish community in Melbourne? I am clearly going to have to do some more research into the Sydney scene. I know that there is a decent sized Russian community here ... somewhat notorious even... but the Polish aren't quite so obvious.

hi zen, i think Melbourne has the largest Polish community in OZ

that is true.

and there is even a festival celebrating everything polish in november, the link is:

.polishfestival.com.au/

i live in the north east, the vic market would be the closest, especially working in the city.

Right - well then - guess I'll have to check it all out in Melbourne. So, Polish people aren't into the sunny weather & great beaches like we have in Sydney.........!!! lol

well, poles do come from a cooler climate so that could explain why there are more poles down south.

but that said, the temperatures between melbourne and sydney do not differ much.

and a trip down our great ocean road or to wilsons promitory may change your mind about great beaches
